- In 2012-2013, I wrote a column titled Eternally Nostalgic for The Equals Record. You can browse a collection of those columns here. They revolve around reflections on home, wander, wonder, grief, memory, loss, and nostalgia and they might as well all be called “An ode to Joan Didion.”
- In 2010, Beth Nicholls asked me why I do what I do for a living. I tried my best to answer here.
Other reflections on gender, violence, storytelling, activism, and work in conflict and post-conflict areas have appeared in Feministing, Gender Across Borders, Critical Peace, Peace x Peace and elsewhere.
