A Discourse on Domination in Mandate Palestine: imperialism, property and insurgency
Zeina B. Ghandour
Date: 2006, 2008
Brief: proofreading, light copy-editing and formatting in accordance with publisher’s house style
Job Description: I first proofread this when it was being submitted as a PhD thesis at the London School of Economics. Two years later, when it was being published as a book by Routledge, Zeina asked me to convert the manuscript into the publisher’s house style.
The Silent Minaret
Brief: critique and feedback
Job description: I read through several drafts of this novel, suggesting changes, edits and aspects for further development.
Date: since 1999
Brief: copy-editing and proofreading
Job description: I have copy-edited and proofread several PhD theses for students at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), London School of Economics (LSE) and Central St Martins. Subjects have included Arabic and African literature, law, economics, education and Islamic art. For some of these students, English has not been their first language. Most of this work has come to me through word of mouth recommendations.
