Dr Hend T. Al-Sudairy is a professor of English Literature at the English Department of the College of Languages at Princess Norah University, Saudi Arabia, and Assistant Dean of Admission at Alfaisal University, Saudi Arabia. Her areas of interest are cultural dialogue, social and religious issues, identity, the use of technology in education, and translation.
She has published more than 35 journal articles, and has translated many works into Arabic.
A member of several social and scientific associations, she was also the first woman to join the “King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Award for Translation” scientific committee.
Alongside us, Hend has published Modern Woman in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: Rights, Challenges, and Achievements, a important book that examines what it is to be a woman in Saudi Arabia, past and present, and champions the contributions made by influential Saudi women across history (amongst whose illustrious ranks Hend certainly is a member).
Here, Hend synthesizes her experience working with Cambridge Scholars Publishing: all the way from editing to publication, emphasizing the ease with which it enabled her to engender her book and (happily) her choice to publish with us again in the near future:
"[Before the publication of] my book: Modern Woman in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: Rights, Challenges, and Achievements, I was unaware of many technicalities but the staff members have helped me and were ready to answer all my inquiries. They were awesome from editing to layout to publishing. That made it easy for me to complete the required steps to have the book ready. I am now writing my second book which deals with women’s freedom of expression and I have chosen to work with Cambridge Scholars Publishing again. I am happy that they accepted my transcript for publishing and I would recommend it to anyone who seeks my advice."
