Her research interests include critical theory, transnational modernism, women’s studies, film and visual culture, intellectual history, and cultural studies. She is Managing Editor of the Journal of Middle East Women's Studies and is currently co-editing a special issue of Polygraph on the theme “Pleasure and Suspicion.” Her writing has been featured in The Comparatist and Polygraph, and is forthcoming in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis.
