At this age, it's difficult to sum up over fifty years of engagement. Some things are lost in time. Other activities were fleeting. But Humanities and Social Action are consistent markers for where I put my energies.
My postings on the webzine attempt to make sense of my life through the lens of my own understandings. I'll post personal observations along with musings on questions that preoccupy me. Posts are both formal and conversational, along with multimedia narratives.
Most recently, I received a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies and was Adjunct Professor at the University of San Francisco. My book Death of a Holy Land was published. Relocating to London, I was Research Fellow at University of London, School of Advanced Studies. I finished at U of L teaching a seminar The Humanities After Brexit and Trump, an attempt to grapple with the profound shifts in today's tumultuous world.
Getting a Ph.D. in my sixties remains a high point, along with being a professor. When I was young, doctorates and professorships were for men, not women. The pleasure of these achievements remains, but so too does the need to move on. Hence this webzine, a space for my personal voice along with the chorus of others.
