This is a call for essays and interviews for a book titled “Alternative Careers for the Stage,” a new book in the "PERFORM: Succeeding as a Creative Professional" series, which will explore possibilities for making use of a theatre education.

To be published by Focal Press, an imprint of Taylor & Francis

Contributors to this book will share their perspectives on professions and theatrical work available to individuals educated in theatre, closely examining career paths that fall outside of the traditional acting, directing, designing, and stage-managing paths. I am particularly interested in inclusion & diversity and the book will have an international perspective.

Queer Cultural Production in the Contemporary Islamicate World (ACLA 2020 Seminar)

Despite widespread calls for increased critical attention to queer cultural production from the Global South, much scholarship still focuses on queerness as it is conceptualized in North American and Western European contexts. With the emergence of homonationalist discourses in the West that frame Islamicate societies as axiomatically homophobic and Muslim queer individuals as oppressed and in need of saving, there is a crucial need to address this lacuna.
