I am a researcher, writer, commentator, and editor, currently based in Beirut, Lebanon.
I completed my PhD in American Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Germany) with summa cum laude. My prize-winning dissertation, “Trans/Intifada. The Politics and Poetics of Intersectional Resistance,” was published by Universitätsverlag Winter in March 2019. Previously, I studied English Literature, Social and Political Thought, Francophone Literatures, and Education at JGU Mainz, York University in Toronto, the Lebanese American University in Beirut, and the University of Cyprus in Nicosia. I was a fellow at Harvard University’s Institute for World Literature in Lisbon.
My essays, analyses, and commentaries have appeared in Muftah Magazine, Al Jazeera English, Al Jazeera Balkans, Mondoweiss, the Palestine Chronicle, Truthout, Grayzone, TeleSur, and Your Middle East, among other media outlets.
