research overview

  • My research focuses on premodern Arabic literature. I am interested in how premodern Arabic texts, particularly from North Africa, narrated the past in light of contemporaneous historical circumstances. I undertake close textual analyses of these texts to explore questions pertaining to authorship, textuality, and originality. Such an approach sheds light on the literary and cultural connections that link Arabic-speaking societies with other linguistic, religious, and cultural communities.
