A Literature for All Its Citizens: Aesthetics of Co-Existence in Israel/ Palestine
This current research project and manuscript in progress is the first chronicle of the shared history of anti-colonial resistance literature and radical aesthetic practices initiated by Palestinians and Jews in Israel/Palestine. A Literature for All Its Citizens unearths the connections between
Palestinian and Jewish Israeli writers and literary circles in their joint engagement with political resistance, anti-racism, anticolonialism
and anti-separatist thought in a global context, thus challenging the disconnect of regional communities and cultures.

The Idea of Iran: The Safavid Era (symposium)
The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw the establishment of the new Safavid regime in Iran. What did the idea of Iran
