Meet Diya Abdo

Meet activist and scholar Diya Abdo
Diya Abdo


Growing up as a Palestinian in Jordan, Diya Abdo straddled multiple cultures. Her love of American literature brought her to the United States. 

Following the attacks of 9/11, she received questions that made her reexamine her roots and she began studying Arab women writers and Islamic feminism. Today, she is an associate professor of English at Guilford College. Host Frank Stasio talks with Abdo about her activism and scholarship.
