The theme for the 2010 Michigan College English Association Conference was “Turning Points” and was held the campus of Henry Ford Community College on October 15, 2010.
The year’s Keynote address was given by Dr. Wijdan Sayigh whose talk was entitled “Turning a Page: Contemporary Arab Women Writers.”
Dr. Sayigh has been an associate professor for over sixteen years at universities in Iraq, Jordan, and Yemen. She is well published in Arabic and has spoken frequently at international conferences focused on modern Arabic fiction, poetry, and criticism. The work of Arab women writers, their influence and challenges, is one of her major interests.
She is currently an adjunct instructor at Washtenaw Community College.
