I am Senior Lecturer in Arabic Literature and Media and Director of Education and Assistant HoD for the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies.

 

I wrote my PhD thesis at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, 2002-2006) before taking up a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (also at SOAS, 2007-2010) and joined the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies in September 2010.

 

My research interests include Arabic and Arab Anglophone writing, comparative literature, translation studies and ecocriticism. My most recent book, Religion in the Egyptian Novel: Themes and Approaches was published by Edinburgh University Press in July 2019. I am currently working on a new monograph on Literature and Environment in Israel/Palestine.  

 

I teach UG and PG modules on literature and film in Israel/Palestine, literary translation, Middle Eastern and postcolonial literature, and advanced Arabic language.

 

I supervise PhD students working on literature and film in the Middle East, Arab-Anglophone literature, Arabic literary and cultural translation studies, and postcolonial studies more generally. 

Research interests

Arabic and Arab anglophone writing, literature & environment, religion & literature, comparative literature, translation studies, postcolonial theory.
