Some of what I've been up to...  
As most of you know, I just finished up my PhD and am getting ready to start a fabulous job at Texas A&M in the Fall. It's been crazy getting the dissertation finished and preparing for the move. But I have a couple nerdy academic things to share. First, I am officially published! One of my articles came out last month in Anthropological Quarterly. Available for download here if you have a university subscription to the journal (I can email you a pdf if you can't get it)

Also, I just wrote a guest entry on higher education in the Gulf for the wonderful Global Higher Education blog. You can find that here. I highly recommend this blog and find the writing and research to be excellent.

Since some of you are the wonderful "informants" that made this possible, I would love to hear your feedback, either here or privately.

All my thanks for everyone's support so far! I have a feeling posting will be on hold for a while, but hopefully, I'll have more to report once I get settled in Texas!

Hi Neha,
congratulations! On the PhD,job and publication - what fantastic news. I look forward to reading it, just downloaded. Had a quick look at your higher ed piece. I've just taught a semester of sociology at AUD so it has given me lots to reflect on. I was actually quite surprised at how openly my 'international' class talked and wrote in their papers about local/expat divisions.
Otherwise it is hot and humid in Dubai as you know! Keep in touch,
