Would you post this student's email address.

I would like to correspond with him/her.

I may be able to send over books.

Thank you,
Christine Gray

I have also received such a letter.  I will not bother to reproduce it
here, but it is essentially the same letter, from an MA student in
English at the University of Mosul, and makes the same requests.  It is,
however, a different student name and the subject of her thesis is
Pinter.  Further, because of the way the letter is addressed it is clear
that she/he/they is using either the MLA Directory of Periodicals or the
MLA list of Useful Addresses.   I had thought about responding but now
wonder if this may not be the Iraq equivalent of the now-infamous
Nigerian email, though I confess to be unable to see what scam might be
involved save for the capture of email or postal addresses.  Have others
gotten such letters and what is the thinking on this subject?  I would
normally be moved to do something for the student who wrote me, but now
hearing of another letter from the same university and same department
making an almost identical request I fear the old skepticism in my soul
surfaces.

Re: the Iraqi post-graduate student

I would be happy to volunteer library leg-work for this Iraqi student.
I am not, however, qualified to function as an advisor for her (him?).
I have an undergrad degree in English, and I'm beginning graduate study
next academic year.  I have access as an alumnus to the University of
Washington libraries.  If this student need to have, for example,
articles copied and mailed, I would be happy to be of service.

Best wishes,
Donald Jellerson

A follow-up to my last post regarding the Iraqi post-grad student:

It seems wise to include "Hamlet" in a thesis on
Shakespeare/Feminism/Tragedy.  There has been much fine work done in
this area by scholars such as Janet Adelman and Elaine Showalter (just
to name a few).

Best wishes,
Donald Jellerson

I don't know how/where Wafa Salim got our addresses, but I've been her
virtual pen-pal for the last 2 months or so, and have sent her copies of
The Woman's Part, A Feminist Companion to Shakespeare, and Valerie
Wayne's Matter of Difference.  She seems to be a serious, warm-hearted
person, and I'd encourage anyone else who wants to take a shot in the
dark to correspond with her and send her what she needs.  There's
usually a major delay between correspondences, so I have yet to hear
whether she actually received the books I sent her.
