Welcome to my home on the internet, an attempt to centralize a very decentralized presence. From here, you can find all types of my content from around the web.
I like to say that I'm a recovering journalist and an aspiring academic. But the truth is that I just like playing with words, even though words are more likely to play with me.
Now for the the formalities:
Wendell Hassan Marsh is a graduate student in African Studies
and Comparative Literature
at Columbia University.
He is interested in the political economy of cultures in Africa, the
Middle East and their diasporas. He has written for Reuters, AllAfrica.com
, and The Harvard Journal of African American Policy
. Wendell has studied Arabic in Egypt as a Fulbright Fellow and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Morehouse College in English and French. He also lived in France and Senegal and traveled to many other African countries.
I am currently working on the Baraza Ijtihad project which hopes to challenge prevailing paradigms of Area Studies and
present academic discussions that are responsive to
contemporary realities and technological change while engaging a wider
public audience in debate.
