<p>When Nada Shabout was studying modern Arab art as a graduate student, she didn’t have all of the resources she needed. She has made it her mission to promote that field. Now the University of North Texas art history professor is co-editing a book on the subject for the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City. And, artsy.net named her as one of “Eight Influential Female Art Historians You Should Know”, citing her for “increasing the visibility of art from communities that often go overlooked in the contemporary art world.”</p>
