Dixiane Hallaj spent eleven years living and working in the Middle East as part of her husband's extended family, gaining a deep understanding of the culture and the problems that face the Palestinian people.  That understanding was augmented by her recent work interviewing women in the camps near Ramallah for her award winning doctoral dissertation.  She received her Ph.D. in 2006 from George Mason University.  
     She currently lives in Purcellville, Virginia with her husband of 51 years, Muhammad Hallaj and their cat named "Dog."

Living among the deer and the wild turkeys.
