I am from Mosul , Nineveh in Iraq. My first challenge started on posting a questionnaire on http://www.iraqihopes.blogspot.com where American native speakers were recruited to be her respondents for my PhD Dissertation , though it was risky! My methodology in using online questionnaire investigating American culture was the first attempt in Mosul, if not in Iraq!Last year was the top of her arena; I joined a variety of global associations and societies as The International Ecolinguistics Association in England , Japan ,and Nigeria and The International Association for Promoting Geoethics. I worked as an editorial board member in academic journals in Canada and America and in the board of reviewers in some Scopus Indexed journals in Turkey and Jordan . My participation in international conferences was so distinguished recently as in France ,England(as delegated honored participant), Denmark , and the United States. National workshops and international ones are my cup of tea either. Being innovative among my peers, I never stop digging in virgin areas in discourse analysis , pragmatics , children’s literature , semiotics , biosemiotics , and ecolinguistics. I never plays an ostrich!As I lived every single moment in the three-year disaster and later the savage war in her city Mosul, she tells the world that we are still alive ,world ! Her article “Learning from a War”. International Teacher Magazine. October Edition(2018) (Published by Cons ilium Education) https://consiliumeducation.com/itm/2018/08/30/lessons-of-war/. My participation is to fill a gap in my specialty , as my paper is the pioneer in the sphere of Discourse Analusis of war photography.Added to this the , the concept f death in a war -zone area like Iraq is not fully grasped by the world.Unseen and unposted photos of the war anguish in Iraq for decades now.
