Ph.D. Program - Comparative Literature

Research Interests:

My dissertation examines humanizing rhetoric in American representations of Islam and the Middle East, particularly after 9/11. I study the development of discourse on Islamic and Middle Eastern cultures through the institutional frameworks of literature, museums, state-sponsored cultural diplomacy, and hip hop.

Research Skills:

Research and teaching areas: global modernist literatures (particularly Arab modernism), contemporary French and American immigrant literatures, and the language of the Arab Spring.

I am fluent in English, Arabic, and French, and have a working knowledge of Korean.
