Biography:

I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of Comparative Literature in the dual-title program with Visual Studies. My research investigates how contemporary visual arts and literatures about the civil conflicts in the Middle East affect their witnesses and/or survivors. My project examines the way the witnesses and/or survivors remember traumatic memories of the conflicts upon encountering these visual cultural products, and the manners in which the resurfacing of these private memories can reclaim their nations' systematically-forgotten collective memories. 

Research Interests:

  • Contemporary Arab(ic) Literature
  • Reception Studies
  • Trauma, Memory and Affect Studies
  • Visual Studies
  • Sound Studies
