Mohammed Hamdan is currently a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of English and Creative Writing at Lancaster University. He completed his MA in Romantic and Victorian Literature at Lancaster University in 2011 and his BA at An-Najah National University in Palestine in 2009. His research focuses on female sexuality and modes of communication in nineteenth-century transatlantic literature. His doctoral thesis explores nineteenth-century Anglo-American psychic and written (corporeal) forms of communication such as Mesmerism, Spiritualism, Telegraphy and Epistolarity and reconsiders the position and role of women within these movements. He is currently interested in comparative studies on exile, landscape and national identity in modern Palestinian-Israeli fiction and the representation of Middle Eastern women in the literature of love and war. He is also interested in the impact of Ottoman and Arab cultures on Early Modern canonical and non-canonical playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe, Fulke Greville and Thomas Kyd.
