As an Egyptian diplomat, he served as a political advisor to several United Nations missions in the Middle East. He dedicated his life to politics in Egypt, working with government officials, presidential candidates and political groups before withdrawing from an active public role a few years ago. In addition, Fishere is an author of six novels, two of which were shortlisted for the “Arabic Booker” Prize, or the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, which recognizes Arabic creative writing. Fishere arrived at Dartmouth this fall as a visiting professor from the American University in Cairo. At the College, he has taught courses about Arab culture, society and literature such as Arabic 81.03, “Images of the West in Arabic Novel” and Arabic 62.04, “Egyptian Culture, Society and Politics.”

Members of the Hanover Zoning Board of Adjustment postponed voting on proposed changes to the zoning laws governing student residences at Tuesday’s town meeting. The proposed changes, which could affect the derecognized Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Alpha Delta fraternities, would require student residences, such as fraternities, to be recognized and operated in compliance with the rules of the College. As it stands now, the ordinance states that student residences must be “operated in conjunction with another institutional use,” not the College specifically. The zoning board will reevaluate the proposal on March 7.
