‘Exploring in research gives me great excitement’

Zainab Farooqui is a junior from Pakistan

What are you most excited about for the coming year?

“I’m most excited about learning more about research this year! I partook in a Summer Research Scholars (SRS) program, and I’ll be continuing working on that over the rest of the academic year as well.

“My SRS research is professor Stephanie Anderson’s Spies in the Audience, a digital archive of women publishers active from the 1950s to 1980s. I will be working on the website to collate visual archival material alongside extracts of professor Anderson’s interviews.

“In addition to this, I’ve begun exploring possible topics of research within my global cultural studies major (literature track) through different courses at Duke Kunshan. Other than research, I have also started working on ideas for my Signature Work with my mentor.”
