Research Interests:

I am a Ph.D. candidate specializing in postcolonial literature with an emphasis on Maghrebi and SubSaharan African literature and cinema. My dissertation focuses on the theme of clandestine migration in novels, graphic novels, and films. My article “‘The Toxic Father’ and ‘the Healing Daughter’ in Marie NDiaye’s Three Strong Women” appeared in The French Review (2017) and I published a collective volume on French-Algerian writer Salim Bachi in L’Harmattan (2019). My most recent article, “The Wretched of the Sea: Clandestine Immigration and Graphic Artistry in Bessora and Barroux’s Alpha: Abidjan to Paris” was accepted for publication in Inks: The Journal of the Comics Studies Society (forthcoming in Summer 2021).
