Writing-Related Projects:

  • Co-founder of a project titled “A3wad Qash”, started in January 2016, which translates to “straw sticks” and alludes to the project’s goal of producing written works beyond straw man arguments in Arabic. It also aims to act as a bridge between academia and the Arabic-reading public. Its participant authors are all Arab graduate students and professionals in the Social Sciences and Humanities. I am joined in this project by two other co-founders: Sultan Alamer (GWU PhD student in Political Science) and Ahmed Alowfi (UIUC PhD student in Sociology).
