Starting from January 2019, I will be joining the University of Chicago as a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. In Chicago, I will be teaching Francophone North African Literature and working on a new research project about the representations of identity and otherness in post-2011 literary production from the Maghreb. My broad research interests include contemporary French fiction and poetry, autobiographical writing, literary theory, and translation.
As an Ertegun alumnus, I would like to support the programme from my new position and help as much as I can the rapidly growing network of Ertegun alumni. I strongly believe that the values promoted by the Ertegun programme can be enhanced by exchanging information and sharing experiences between current scholars and alumni.
