Sara Ray (B.A. Anthropology 2008) has published an article in a Columbia University journal on how the government of the Republic of Macedonia represents the country as Westernized and Christian, hardly mentioning Muslims, Turks, or Roma, and annoying the Greeks by overusing references to Hellenic culture.
Sara's piece, "Marketing Macedonia," appears in the January 2012 issue of SIPA News, a publication of the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs. To read it, click on the headline above.
After graduation, Sara spent 26 months as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching English in a small city in Macedonia. She is now an administrative assistant in the Office of Communications and External Relations at Columbia University.
