Sana Khan

Sana Khan  is a writer and editor living in New York. She will profile the two South Asian Muslim managers of Casa Magazines, a shop that has endured in the West Village for about eight decades. Through the prisms of faith, immigration, and gender, she will explore a vibrant hub of print—and city life. Previously, she has written about books, art, and film for The Abusable Past, Brown Girl Magazine, Kajal Magazine, and the Oxford University Press blog. Her academic work has focused on gender and space in princely Hyderabad, India, a hometown that she shares with one of the store managers. Sana works as a project editor at Oxford University Press. She will consider how a seemingly contained shop can be a window into a neighborhood, and even—through seepage into the wider world—reframe our understanding of what a neighborhood can be and do.
