Research Interests

My research covers the cultural politics of the Middle East with special focus on identity, conflict, diaspora studies and modernization in so far as these issues relate to language, modern Arabic literature, translation and memory. I also conduct research in Arabic grammatical theory and the Arabic intellectual tradition in the pre-modern period.
