Greetings, Anwar! You're cute. :) I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Hey Anwar:

Thanks for the words of appreciation and congrats on getting into the EdD program! I didn't know you were going into the education field (I do teacher professional development in addition to youth leadership development in high schools, so this is near and dear to my heart), which school are you going to?

Hey Anwar, Any news about grad school? And how's your semester going? We just started our spring break, so I am busy catching up on all the work that has been accumulating for the last few weeks.

Otherwise, I'm hoping to finish my book this week--what a relief it will be to have this burden off my shoulders. If you get a spare minute, let me know how life's treating you.

Talk to you later,

Hey Anwar,
You'd said you were interested in contributing to the global atheist experiences project I'm working on, but I'm not sure which of your blogs you wanted to share. I quite appreciated the one titled "Objectivity Manifests Misrepresentation." One of the comments below it stated that you were working on something similar regarding atheism; I look forward to it. Is that (future?) blog the one you mean to contribute for the book project?
As a totally random aside, my brother-in-law's name is Anwar.

Dear Anwar,
Yes, I would definitely appreciate your contribution to the essay project. I want to include as many different voices as possible, including voices from within various American communities. Are you interested in submitting the blog you mentioned, or adapting it for the project, or...?
Thanks very much for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you again,

Heyyyy! I'm doing well - classes have started up in full swing again, so I'm glad to actually have work to do! How's everything up North?

Thanks for the comments - very flattering! We'll have to talk about urban education sometime - I'd love to hear what you have to say. My philosophical background is a little different (strictly Anglo-American analytical, with some Pragmatism thrown in), but I occasionally explore the continentals... =D

Hey Anwar, So good to hear from you. On my end, things are starting to get manageable--only a few more weeks of teaching, and then I will have five weeks to finish my book, which I hope to send to publishers by the end of January. It will feel strange to be finished with this book, as I have been living with it for four years now. I suspect it will feel like sending one of my children off to college.

How are your grad school applications coming along? Teaching and applying to grad school probably feels overwhelming.

Hope all is well.

Talk to you later,

Thanks for your note. Yes, teaching at Elon is great and getting to do the resseach I do is stimulating and, IMHO, useful.

That's good! Are your projects going well?

I'm SO relieved cos I went from having no job to THREE as of today, which takes insurmountable amounts of stress off my mind. It also means I can pay for bronchitis medication *phew*

Anwar, hey! Things are a bit better, to my relief. How are you?

Hey, Anwar. I am a graduate student studying political philsophy at UNC-Chapel Hill. I am having a great time and UNC is a great department. What are your philosophical interests?

Heh. You might be surprised that some people don't love Grundgetta.

NYU is generally solid academically but again beware of the insular racialized politics (which exist to some extent everywhere). Am Studies used to have Tricia Rose and Robin Kelley (black critical theory scholars). Rose has moved on but if Kelley is there he's worth hooking up with; his emphasis is black popular culture, labor history, social justice politics, etc.

Oooohman, anticipate an email.

How is it?
I need a serious hug. Things are kinda bad on my end. I hope things are MUCH better with you, though!

NYU was a good formative/toughening experience; intellectually challenging and at that time heavily steeped in critical theory (poststructuralism, postcolonialism, etc.). I was one of about three AA students in Perf Studies so the racial climate was definitely problematic; characterized by the usual graduate school incestuous/parasitic claustrophobia, liberal white denial and faculty favoritism. I advise all grad students of color to develop backbones of steel and to zealously protect their work/psyches from predators. What programs are you looking into?

Thanks Anwar. I appreciated your blog posts as well, especially the whole notion of feeling on the margins identity-wise. At the AAI conference this weekend I could count the number of people of color present on two hands.

Thanks, Anwar. I needed that.
I hope all is well on your end!
