Journalist, essayist and poet Harris KHALIQUE (IWP '15) has been appointed the Secretary General of Pakistan's Human Rights Commission.
For 2010's Between the Lines, we stretched ourselves in several important directions. Geographically, participants represented a total of eight countries, coming from as far west as Algeria and as far east as Oman. Culturally, students shared their worlds with Americans through an international literature salon, a Saturday translation seminar, and a session simply called "Arabic 101." Participants also were treated to an authentic country barn dance, a meeting with members of one of the country's oldest Midwestern Muslim communities, and, due largely to the unexpected success of 2008, a two-day visit to Chicago.
