Dr. Katrina Mcneely Farren-Eller:
For as long as she can remember, neely, Assistant Professor of English at Upper Iowa University, has always been interested in why people believe what they believe and how they come to do what they do. Ultimately, it is about the ways in which our beliefs affect
how we relate to and treat each other, especially others who live so differently than we do.
For Neely, traveling and experiencing difference is one of the best ways to question the stories and judgments she tells about herself and others. She has come to find out that what matters most is the humanity we all share in common, not the differences that threaten to divide us.
