About Me

I am an associate professor in the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the University of Arizona where I specialize in the cultural and intellectual history of the modern Arab world. I hold a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago.

My book,  Brothers Apart: Palestinian Citizens of Israel and the Arab World (Stanford University Press, 2017), examines how Palestinian intellectuals in Israel have connected to global decolonization movements through literary and journalistic writings. My scholarly articles have appeared in the Journal of Palestine Studies, Arab Studies Journal, and the Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication.

I am also a 2018 Public Voices Fellow with the OpEd Project and a Policy Member of Al-Shabaka – The Palestinian Policy Network. My analysis and opinion pieces have appeared in The Washington Post, The Forward, The Conversation, The Hill, Middle East Report and elsewhere.
