Expat Harem Editors Join EU School Project
On the 22nd and 23rd of January, co-editor Jennifer Eaton Gökmen participated in an online forum discussion between Hisar Educational Foundation School in Istanbul, Turkey and Externat Notre Dame School in Grenoble, France.

This inter-school communication is part of the
European Union Comenius Project called eTwinning, which aims to promote communication between European schools. Both schools have been reading excerpts from Expat Harem as an exploration of cultural identity and the negation of stereotypes.

In addition to this online dialogue initiated by teachers John Israel (TR) and Odile Pouchol (FR), both editors will meet with the Turkish and French high schoolers when when Externat Notre Dame visits Hisar Educational Foundation this April and again in October 2008.
