    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Research


    This single-subject case study explored the work of an American teacher who converted to Islam and relocated to Cairo, Egypt. Data were gathered and analyzed using a conceptual framework grounded in the concepts of gender, social class, and interpersonal relationships. This study is a unique contribution to our understanding of teacher work moderated by two cultural phenomena: religious conversion and cross-cultural work. This study provides insight into the unique social and cross-cultural challenges she confronted in her day-to-day life. [Google Books]
