Sabah Aisawi will join the University of Winnipeg as a visiting research fellow from February to June.
As the first woman to gain a PhD in children's literature in Saudi Arabia she will look at cultural diversity and portrayal of disability in children’s literature.
Aisawi said she chose to spend her sabbatical at the U of W since "it is one of the most well-known centres worldwide in my field of research."
She will also be teaching a new children’s literature course at the University of Dammam in Saudi Arabia next year, and will consult with U of W faculty who teach in the field of young people’s texts and cultures.
