Culture Circuit Inventor, Educator, Lecturer, Event Organizer, Traveler, Grandmother and a few more things.
My life is teaching, my love is traveling. Ever since childhood have I ventured as far as I could to experience other places, other people, other customs. All along people were worried about me. But my history is good: I have come back safe and sound from everywhere. From hitch-hiking across Eastern Europe deep into the old Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s; from India, China, or Peru. From Pakistan, too – even though it was the time Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in 2007.
My background is art history. As people in my field know – one has to see the real thing to put all the book learning into perspective. Ever since I started teaching, my travels have been the back-bone of my classes and the starting point for many public lectures. I love sharing my experiences and I love connecting the art and history of the past with people’s lives of today. I love to bring the world to my students as so many of them can not travel the way I have been privileged to do.
My desire is to continue to explore interesting places and share my experiences with others. That is why I decided to organize Culture Circuit, providing an opportunity for myself and others to meet and talk about the wonderful places in this world. I hope Culture Circuit will become a platform for me and others to be creative and to express their talents and interests.
