I am a first year student in the Comparative Literature and African Studies department. I am interested in African-American and Arabic slave narratives. I am interested in questions of translation, audience, interpretation, language, religion, and culture. I am fluent in both English and Arabic. I would also like to expand my research and include Latin America thus learning Spanish, Swahili and if time allows Portuguese.
