If you were to interview a mother living in Bahrain about education, what might she say? Just ask one Wayne State University researcher, who has extensive experience doing exactly that. May Seikaly, Ph.D., associate professor of classical and modern languages, literatures and cultures at WSU's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, recently spent a year interviewing hundreds of women, men and youth from all social strata in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Her ultimate goal is to write a book that will provide a holistic account of the region's social history.
