Music Scholar & College Prof Barred From U.S., but No One Will Tell Her Why
Violinist and scholar Naini Ghuman was graduated from Oxford and the University of California at Berkeley. She's a violinist, scholar, author, and her passion is Edward Elgar and musical traditions in India.
When she returned to the U.S. from a research trip to England, she found that she was barred from re-entering the country. So far, she still doesn't know why.
I'm not quite sure why a musicologist focusing on Edward Elgar would seem to be a terrorist threat.
Nalini Ghuman, an up-and-coming musicologist and expert on the British composer Edward Elgar, was stopped at the San Francisco airport in August last year and, without explanation, told that she was no longer allowed to enter the United States.
