I am Chancellor’s Fellow at University of Edinburgh. I was previously Lecturer/Assistant Professor (Ad Astra Fellow) at University College Dublin, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at University of Warwick, and Teaching Fellow in Contemporary and Postcolonial Literature at University of Birmingham. I have also taught at University of York.
My monograph Hydrofictions: Water, Power and Politics in Israeli and Palestinian Literature
was published in 2020 by Edinburgh University Press. It was shortlisted for the 2021 ASLE-UKI Book Prize. I am now writing my second monograph, titled Water Crisis and World Literature
I have wider interests in resource politics, feminist and queer theory, animal studies, and popular culture.
My research has been funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, the Leverhulme Trust, the BA-RIA Knowledge Frontiers scheme, and competitive internal schemes at UCD and York.
From 2013-2015 I coordinated the interdisciplinary, AHRC-funded research network ‘Imagining Jerusalem, c. 1099 to the Present Day’. You can read more about the network on our archived blog: http://jerusalems.wordpress.com/
