Dr Lindsey Moore


Research Overview

I specialise in post-1948 literatures of the Arab world (including North Africa) in the global Anglosphere, with a background in postcolonial literary studies. My work foregrounds gender, heritage, genre, circulation and consecration, and often explores the relationship between creative expression and (post)national – including Islamist and ‘Arab Spring’ – orientations. I work mostly with material in English, French, and in translation from Arabic.
