Hussein Rashid, PhD
Hussein Rashid, PhD, is a native New Yorker whose pop culture worldview is shaped by Star Wars. His idea of fun is getting into the minutiae of speculative fiction, without ostracizing anyone. His academic interests means that he knows that Jabba the Hutt trades in Orientalist stereotypes, and that Hermione really should’ve been the main character of the series, but patriarchy got in the way.
On weekends, you can find him with a good cup of tea, a deerstalker cap, and an (empty) meerschaum pipe, in the library, having second breakfast with his friend Gandalf.
