Sana Saeed is a politically savvy writer and humourist currently based in Canada. She holds an MA in Islamic Studies from the Institute for Islamic Studies at McGill University, with a focus on modern Levantine political history. Her thesis was a social history on a series of conferences and workshops, during the Oslo interim period, on the future of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
While she writes on a diverse range of topics, she primarily is interested in U.S foreign and domestic policy; contemporary political history of the Levant; consequences of domestic counter-terrorism policies on civil liberties, Western-Muslim identity; sexuality and sex construction; effects of pornography on men and women; state-citizen-refugee relations; Hip hop; Black American Islamic history; European politics and social interaction with Islam and immigrants and faith-based social welfare organizations in the Muslim world. She also focuses on observational and humorous pieces.
Sana is currently the Senior Editor for islawmix, a project of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law, Online Senior Editor with the Islamic Monthly, a contributor at MuslimahMediaWatch, and former contributor and Editor-in-Chief at KABOBfest. She has been published in international magazines and online publications and has presented and spoken at several conferences and symposiums. She has also been a panelist on RussiaTV and a guest host on AJEnglish’s social media based show The Stream. She is currently working on two forthcoming publications and is unfortunately also pursuing an on-the-side stand-up career. As it is abundantly clear from the preceding information, a disposable income is no where near in Sana’s future.
Her personal blog for all things facetious and ethically questionable, is Aristotle’s Lackey.
