Odds and ends

Farah Pandith, the Secretary of State’s Special Representative to Muslim Communities, recently launched a newsletter, voices. You’ll remember that I attended the Secretary of State’s Ramazan iftar last September; the newsletter talks about it and even includes a picture with me (on page 2 at the bottom).

Also, my friend Thea Lim reminded me that my article “Scarfing it down,” appears in the eighth edition of Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, which she’s using in her writing classes. It’s humbling to know that I’m part of a textbook that teaches university¬† students critical thinking. Lots of MMW articles are used in university-level gender studies classes, and this article is just one more aspect of my work that I’m proud of.

Lots of exciting things are coming up in the next few months, so stay tuned for more!
