Below you will find several writing samples from my academic career:


“Civil Disobedience: the Ultimate Resistance in Non-Democratic Countries”

This is an expository-style research paper about civil disobedience in non-democratic societies, written after the Egyptian Revolution of 2011.

“Phonetic Analysis of Albanian”

For this long-term project I conducted fieldwork on a native speaker of Albanian, Leticia Lucaj, to determine the sound system of the language. Data was collected through a series of interviews, analyzed using Pratt, and presented in this paper.

“The Importance of Understanding Faith”

This paper is a short ethnography written about a Muslim and Arab-American woman named Luluah Mustafa. The information was gathered from interviews which I conducted with a classmate.
