Comparative Literature

I work primarily in postcolonial theory and across Arabic, Anglophone and Francophone literature. Other research interests of mine include ecocriticism and environmental literature; colonial psychoanalysis and medicine; visual studies; gender and sexuality studies; and discrepant histories (and theories) of the novel.

At UC Berkeley I am a doctoral student in the Department of Comparative Literature, where I teach and am pursuing a Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory. I also serve on the editorial board of Duke University Press’s interdisciplinary journal, Qui Parle, and co-organize the Townsend Center Working Group on Psychoanalysis with Uttara Chaudhuri and Professor Poulomi Saha.
