Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts at Macquarie University. My research sits at the intersection of postcolonial studies and Middle East studies, especially the Arab Middle East and its diaspora. My main research interests include Arab diaspora literature and culture, the history of colonialism in the Middle East, and the politics and culture in the Levant. I have published a monograph and several articles on contemporary Lebanese diaspora fiction. I am currently working on two projects - the first focuses on the broader network of Arab diaspora writers and their reflections on borders and nations, and the second is a collaborative ARC project on Rioting and the Literary Archive (with Helen Groth and Julian Murphet).
