I am a PhD candidate in Cultural Studies at the Moroccan Cultural Studies Centre at Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah University in Fez. The narrative of my dissertation centers on geopolitics, faith and sexuality in English Barbary captivity narratives. Besides, I am interested in researching the politics and poetics of socio-political change after the MENA uprisings of 2011. I have given papers at a number of international conferences in Morocco, Germany and Austria. A paper on Thomas Pellow’s captivity narrative (1739) appeared as a book chapter in Romanian-Moroccan Forms of Manifestation in the European Space (2014). Other papers from my dissertation are under review. I have taught English to secondary and tertiary students for 12 years now.
