The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights informs her writing endeavors, teaching philosophy, advocacy, and approach to life. Some of Mischa’s research topics include the right to equitable education and dignified housing, child welfare, the Armenian Genocide and Diaspora, restorative justice, and the multifaceted human condition.
Mischa is a contributing writer and editor at The Markaz Review, and her work has appeared in such publications as Middle East Eye, The Guardian, Truthout, LA Review of Books, Colorlines, Gomidas Institute, National Catholic Reporter, and openDemocracy. She’s covered stories on human trafficking, homelessness, the US prison system, Native American health crises, the Mediterranean refugee crisis, and journalists imprisoned simply for doing their jobs. Her work in critical media literacy and un- and under-reported news serves her in an advisory role on the board of Project Censored’s Censored Press.
Reflective of her heritage, education, and experience in communications, political and social sciences, and art history of the Levant and Mediterranean, much of Mischa’s interests and pursuits are oriented to these ancient lands.
