About & Contact

Hi, I’m Rushaa (pronounced Russia)!

I’m a writer-for-hire located between London, UK and Maastricht, NL. I work on both personal essays and more analytical pieces about politics, culture and society, some for this blog and some for other publications.

Currently I have just finished my M.A. in Politics and Society at Maastricht University, with a particular focus on how political and social rhetoric shapes conceptions of the Western European Muslim diaspora (and queer minority groups within that). I hold a B.A. in Politics from SOAS, University of London where I centred my studies on politics of the Middle East, Africa, and the role of religion and ethnicity (especially that of Islam) within governments, conflict, and communities.

Contact me for commissions or just to say hello!: rushaahamid@gmail.com // @thesecondrussia

Areas of Interest Include:

  • Gender, sexuality, and the impact of its intersections with other identities.
  • Ethnic and cultural identities (including race/religion and their varied modern manifestations, with particular focus on Islam).
  • Ideas of nationalism, populism, and the reshaping of modern political discourse.
