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. 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
