A New Year & New Perspectives

Saturday September 10, 2016

Welcome back! The September meeting will feature AAUW Member and CSU Long Beach Anthropology Department Administrative Coordinator Mitra Baghdadi. Academically, she focuses her research on psycholinguistics and the social sciences, which includes understanding gender differences in linguistic communication in Iran. Her publications include: “Gender Representation in English and Arabic Foreign Language Textbooks in Iran: A Comparative Approach” and “Contrastive (error) analysis of Persian and English adjectives”. Mitra also received the reward for Best Master’s Thesis in 2012 after completing her graduate studies in Linguistics at CSU Long Beach.

She will present her views on Iranian women in today’s world for the branch meeting. Personally, as a student in the department of anthropology at CSU Long Beach, I know Mitra as not only academically and professionally accomplished but as someone who has a passion for helping students. She is a person both the department and students rely on. The graduate student association has been thankful for her support throughout the years, and I am thankful for the support she has shown during my time at CSU Long Beach. (from Leah Sakacs) Mitra will be speaking at the branch meeting on Saturday, September 10th at California Heights United Methodist Church. The meeting starts with social and networking time at 9:30 am, business meeting held at 10:00 am followed by Mitra’s presentation at 10:30 am. Lunch will be served at 11:30 am.
