Five faculty authors at AUS honored
American University of Sharjah (AUS) has recently held an on-campus reception to honor five faculty members from the university's Department of English. The authors had a collective total of five books published in the previous year on subjects ranging from Arab culture to classroom management.
"Writing or editing a book is a monumental achievement, and this event gives our faculty authors a chance to be recognized and to briefly talk about their books," said Dr. John Battenburg, head of the Department of English. "The fact that five out of 20 of our full-time faculty have had books published is a considerable achievement," he added.
The five professors who were honored are: Dr. David Prescott, Associate Professor of English, who wrote Resolving Classroom Management: Action Research Reports from the United Arab Emirates; Dr. Lily Mabura, Assistant Professor of English, who wrote How Shall We Kill the Bishop? And Other Stories; Dr. Ahmad Al-Issa, Associate Professor of English, who co-authored Global English and Arabic: Issues of Language, Culture, and Identity; Dr. Maher Bahloul, Associate Professor of English, who co-authored Lights! Camera! Action and the Brain: The Use of Film in Education; and Dr. Nawar Golley, Associate Professor of English, who co-authored Mapping Arab Women's Movements: A Century of Transformations from Within.
