Transformative social movements, cultures of resistance and dissent in the larger Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region as well as within the Mediterranean region inform my scholarship. From a conceptual perspective, my interests lie in understanding solidarity-building practices and the politics of alliance among diverse groups and communities including, but not limited to, urban youth, women’s and LGBTQI groups, Muslim cultural identities, anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian community organizers as well as ethnic and religious minorities. My research involves feminist ethnographic and community-based research methods.
