“Things Have Been Weird This Week”: Calligraphy, Pedagogy, Terror

I’ve updated the post on Muslim identity to add a short postscript on the Arabic calligraphy case that closed down the schools in Augusta County, Virginia.

I guess the take-away here for us academics is this: if you want a day off, involve your students in an activity involving Arabic calligraphy. Of course, this method has its risks, since you might get more than a day off.

I belatedly saw this item, which gave me the title of the post.
