Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ I've decided to start using #ReadingOutsideTheBox as a way of signposting books I read that are outside of mainstream interests. As someone researching the Middle East, within postcolonial and gender studies, I'm lucky enough to have been introduced to many new writers and ideas, who have shaped who I am and how I understand the world. I'm hoping that using this hashtag will make me even more aware of the reading choices I make - it's always possible to read more widely! To me, reading outside the box means reading translated books, books by writers outside of the UK and US, books written by people of colour, women, and LGBTQ writers, as well as books published by small presses, or that have gone out of print, or don't circulate widely...there are no hard and fast rules, of course.

As a starting point, these books are my picks for reading outside the box. Some of these I bought very recently; others I've had for years! Here I hold novels, short stories, memoirs, essays and poetry, including writers who are Argentinian, Egyptian, Israeli, Libyan, Indian, Palestinian, Irish, Finnish, Polish, Icelandic, Zimbabwean and Sudanese.

Research wise I'm now at a crossroads, as I contemplate my next projects and how close (or far) they'll be from what I currently do. So, ensuring that I keep reading outside the box feels like the best way to figure things out...

I'm selling new postcards and a poster. Proceeds go to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). See my bio for the link to my store.

If you have any questions, please check my Facebook page, where I've written about this in far greater detail and also included a Q&A.

Spotted! Blair Bentley on a PhD field trip at Eighty Mile Beach. He's researching how climate change impacts developing sea turtles in North-Western Australia ๐Ÿขโ˜€๏ธ#worldturtleday ๐Ÿ“ธ: @blairizzle #uwa #pursueimpossible #universitywa #universityofwesternaustralia #experienceuwa #uwastudents #northwestaustralia #eightymilebeach #portheadland #greatsandydesert #turtle #studentlife #universitylife #phd #phdlife #westernaustralia #thisiswa #justanotherdayinwa #studyperth #studyaustralia #australia

I'm so excited for you all to meet Maddie @madsbrasier, our first #shesinscience feature this week! Maddie is an Antarctic Biologist in the UK who was accepted to go on this year's all-female Antarctic Expedition called Homeward Bound! Check out the link in bio to read more about this amazing opportunity, the expedition itself, and her fundraising efforts.

[1/3] "Iโ€™m a PhD student at the University of Liverpool and Natural History Museum London. I study the diversity, distribution and ecology of one of the most abundant animals on the Antarctic seafloor โ€“ polychaete worms! I also work with British Antarctic Survey to analyse the seafloor communities within an Antarctic marine protected area. I visited Antarctica for the first time in 2016, it was without doubt the most beautiful place I have ever seen. Itโ€™s isolated yet vulnerable, extreme in every way and of course its wildlife and scenery is truly breath-taking! As a young scientist I work closely with some incredible senior researchers. I really look up to those who helped me make some important choices during my undergraduate and PhD. Because of this I became a STEM ambassador, I wanted to share my journey and decision making with those younger than me. As well as helping the next generation of scientists I also love outreach work with the wider public. Sharing my science with those with non-science backgrounds is so rewarding. When people see what I do and get excited it reinforces why I spend so much time time and energy reading journals, analysing data or out in the cold collecting samples. People care because at the end of the day science matters, environmental change will affect all of us in different ways. In order to monitor and manage these changes we need to understand how marine communities and ecosystems work. Data driven management is essential for a sustainable future for marine resources."

These are only 20% of my reading materials... a.k.a. the #articles that I currently used as my #thesis references. More to come and thats for sure.

Being a part time #phdcandidate is not that easy. Am juggling between work and study and family. I would say am still at low gear at the moment... yet to get full speed ahead. But the good part is... I am one semester ahead from my batch. Alhamdulillah... Got to get the momentum going.

Ada orang melakukannya kerana nama, kerana gelar dan kerana impian. Saya melakukannya kerana #ilmu. Saidina Ali R.A. pernah berkata, jika kita ada harta, kita akan sibuk menjaga harta. Tapi kalau kita ada ilmu, ilmu pula yang akan menjaga kita.

NEW BLOG POST.
.
We are all human. So there is no surprise when sometimes we just lose all motivation to do what we need to do. The same goes for PhD students - we can easily fall of the path and struggle to get back on.
.
This is how Ive been feeling recently. I have no motivation, no inspiration and no focus to get in the lab and do what I gotta do! So I thought Id write a blog post about it in case anyone else is struggling at the moment and share some advice about how Im getting over it.
.
Click the link in my bio to see what I recommend or write your advice in the comments below so we can all make this PhD journey that little bit easier for each other :)
.
On a side note - my focus and motivation is back now so it must have worked :P

End of the semester grading is almost done - a week early so it's a celebration for me. Now some reading to get me in the mindset to write. I have three articles to get out in the next two weeks - up next on workforce diversity. Then race-based trauma and the other on microagressions in healthcare. Let's see how much I can do before boys get home.

The Europe Chronicles: DAY601 Imagine traveling to Netherlands for 8 Euro back and forth from Aachen-Maastricht-Aachen. ๐Ÿ‘

I actually plan to just walk around and study in a coffee shop... boring ๐Ÿ™ƒ. Then I've met Brazilian ladies in the bus, Thanks Milena for inviting me to join. It was a very fun filled party at the Festival Trek ๐Ÿ˜‚. I can say Brazilians know how to have fun, party and chill ๐Ÿ˜. Like Pinoys, they have this culture of 'happiness' and smiles ๐Ÿ˜ .
