I specialise in post-1948 literature of the Arab world (including North Africa) within postcolonial studies. To date I've focused on configurations of national and transnational community, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality. I work with material in English, French and in translation from Arabic.
My second monograph, Narrating Postcolonial Arab Nations: Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Palestine came out with Routledge in November 2017. This book works against the marginalisation, to date, of the Arab world within postcolonial literary studies. It brings together canonical and less familiar Arab novels and memoirs from the last half century to consider colonial continuities and consequences, literary productions of hospitable nations, and histories that produced twenty-first century Arab uprisings.
Islamism and Cultural Expression in the Arab World, co-edited with Abir Hamdar, was published by Routledge in 2015. My first book, Arab, Muslim, Woman: Voice and Vision in Postcolonial Literature and Film came out in 2008, also with Routledge.
I was the Principal Investigator of the AHRC-funded project 'Islamism in Arab Fiction and Film, 1947 to the Present' (with Abir Hamdar), 2009-2010. http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/projects/islamism/index.htm
