Thesis Outline

My thesis is provisionally entitled: Frames and Cuts: Post-Millennial Representations of West Asian Female Identities.

I am investigating mediations of female identities in texts and media that represent West Asian women in the contemporary period, and exploring models of witnessing, visualising, and testimony.

Research Interests

My current research interests include: postcolonial feminism(s); inter-media relations (written text, visual media); West Asia; the Middle-East; post-9/11; geo-politics/ transnational relations; testimony/ witnessing; politics of translation; Orientalism(s) and Imperialism(s); graphic novels (esp. in postcolonial contexts); and fantastical and/or gothic (esp. in postcolonial/global texts).

Current Teaching

I am currently a seminar tutor for ENGL101: World Literature.
