I’m a freelance journalist and an ESRC-funded doctoral candidate in the anthropological department of SOAS university. My research comparatively explores Spanish/Catalan Jewish and Catalan/Spanish-Moroccan Muslim identity in contemporary Barcelona.
Some of my current research interests include: Jewish-Muslim relations in contemporary Barcelona; comparative Jewish and Muslim anthropology; progressive forms of Judaism and Islam; neo-liberalism; migration and contemporary European identity; diasporic identity; cosmopolitanism; mnemohistory.
I co-ordinate, with the Jewish-Muslim Research Network, a monthly reading group comparatively exploring Jewish and Muslim identity, Judaism and Islam and ‘Jewish-Muslim’ relations. Please email me if you would like to join.
