Research overview

My research is primarily on post-1948 literature of the Arab world (including North Africa) within postcolonial studies. I focus particularly on configurations of national and transnational community, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality. I work with material in English, French and in translation from Arabic.

PhD supervision

I am interested in receiving high quality proposals from prospective PhD students in the following areas: -Modern Arab literature in English, French or translation. -Palestinian, Lebanese and 'Levantine' literatures. -Postcolonial theory and the Arab world. -Migration/diaspora literature.

Research Interests

My research is primarily on post-1948 literature of the Arab world (including North Africa) within postcolonial studies. I focus particularly on configurations of national and transnational community, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality. I'm currently completing Postcolonial Arab Literary Nations, for Routledge, which will have chapters on literary reconfigurations of nation in Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon and Palestine. 

I have wider interests in Middle Eastern visual media and in South Asian and migration literatures. Islamism and Cultural Expression in the Arab World, co-edited with Abir Hamdar, was published by Routledge in 2015. My first book, Arab, Muslim, Woman: Voice and Vision in Postcolonial Literature and Film came out in 2008, also with Routledge.

I was the Principal Investigator of the AHRC-funded project 'Islamism in Arab Fiction and Film, 1947 to the Present' (with Abir Hamdar), 2009-2010. http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/projects/islamism/index.htm 

I am on the steering group of the Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research, http://www.transculturalwriting.com
