After Nardello: Where to from here?

The Nardello & Co. report on NYU Abu Dhabi’s labor violations was released about three weeks ago, but it’s unclear where this puts NYUAD and in particular the student body. We’ve had promises of action from administration that vary in their ability to be successfully implemented. On the ground in Abu Dhabi, the work by […]

Against the Rhetoric, If You Don’t Like It, Leave

Logical fallacies are nothing new to the US American political consciousness. In some ways, they are a staple of public opinion. “If you don’t like it, leave,” is but the latest example in a long line to have permeated social media.

Tapping into a continent’s stories with PenAfrica: Hayat Mohammed

For Ethiopian sophomore Hayat Mohammed, the idea of an organization that would empower young writers and promote African story-telling first began as a high school class project with friends.

Finding the art in Bharatnatyam

With the soles of her feet colored bright red, freshman Keerthana Anna Prakash still carries vestiges from her last performance of Bharatnatyam, an Indian classical dance, as she prepares for finals week.

Abu Dhabi’s Russian Community told through food

The glaring red title welcomed us as we entered: Russian Kitchen House Cafeteria. Though the small space, decorated by red-bricked walls and ten tables, looked empty, a middle-aged man inside took a break from watching Russian Channel One to reassure my friend and me that the cafeteria was open. We sat down and waited. After […]

On Galeano’s Open Veins

Upon the end of my senior year of High School, I encountered Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano for the first time. I’ve never considered myself a rebel, but his book “Open Veins of Latin America” sparked some kind of internal rage toward my societal beliefs — a passionate feeling that battled in my mind for a […]

Tricycle: The Next Karabarate or Just Another Passing Fad?

With the 24-hour film race now a week behind us, the glitz and glam of NYU Abu Dhabi’s most prominent film event has begun to fade. It is during this time that one’s mind begins to turn from glory to legacy. One cannot help but wonder what will become of the legacy of one particular […]
