Dr. Mohammed Albakry is Professor of English and Applied Linguistics in the English Department and Affiliate Faculty in the Literacy Studies PhD Program at Middle Tennessee State University. He teaches a variety of language education and literacy instruction courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. His research often takes up the intersection between language and identity, discourse and society, and translation theory and practice. His book publications include "Translation and the Intersection of Texts, Contexts, and Politics: Historical and Socio-Cultural Perspectives,"  "Tahrir Tales: Plays from the Egyptian Revolution," and numerous refereed articles that appeared in World Englishes, Educational Theory, and Text & Talk, among other venues. He has also translated several works of Arabic drama and short stories into English, and co-hosts (with Joseph McAlhany) the podcast "On Translation" <https://www.ontranslation.org/>. He has held external grants and fellowships from Fulbright, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the University of Connecticut's Humanities Institute, among others. A recipient of the Outstanding Teacher Award from MTSU Foundation, he has taught and lectured extensively at universities in North Africa and East Asia. Besides his passion for language, he is fond of theater, mountains, coffee, classic movies, and all things historical.
