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.
