Thesis working title: "Reconfiguring Citizenship and Identity in Literary Depictions of Migration to the Arab Gulf States."

I am a fourth year PhD candidate. My thesis studies mainly Arabic fiction depicting the experiences of migrants in the Gulf, but I am also interested in other writings from outside the Arab world and in how the Gulf is represented in literature and popular culture.

I taught on the EN122 Modes of Reading module in 2017/2018 and on the EN123 Modern World Literatures module in 2018/2019.

I recently organized a one-day conference called "The Arab World as Ghurba: Citizenship, Identity and Belonging in Literature and Popular Culture." You can find out more about it here: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/hrc/confs/arab

I also organize a Middle East and North Africa reading group that is open to all Warwick postgraduate students and staff. Please email me if you are interested in joining the group.
