Eric Reeves is Professor of English Language and Literature at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. He has spent the past eight years working full-time as a Sudan researcher and analyst, publishing extensively both in the US and internationally. He has testified several times before the Congress, has lectured widely in academic settings, and has served as a consultant to a number of human rights and humanitarian organizations operating in Sudan. Working independently, he has written on all aspects of Sudan’s recent history. He has recently received a generous grant from the Humanity First Initiative of the Omidyar Network to support his research and travel. The flexibility of Smith College has allowed him to take a number of semesters as leave without pay. His book about Darfur (“A Long Day’s Dying: Critical Moments in the Darfur Genocide”) will appear in March/April 2007 (available here). He is also at work on a longer-range project surveying the international response to ongoing war and human destruction in Sudan over the past 18 years (“Sudan — Suffering a Long Way Off”).
