About

I’m a writer and anthropological researcher. Over the past five years, I’ve written freelance journalistic articles and am currently an ESRC-funded Mphil candidate in the anthropology department of SOAS, University of London (2019-2023). My research explores Jewish politics and culture in Barcelona, with a specific interest in Jewish-Muslim relations, cultural economics and social memory. I have also recently written a literary novel, drawing from my anthropological research on Jewish and Muslim life in Spain, which I am seeking representation for with the hope of publication (please email if you wish to know more or know of suitable literary agents).

Some of my current research interests include: Jewish-Muslim relations in contemporary Barcelona; comparative Jewish and Muslim anthropology; inter-minority politics; post-industrial labour markets; Neoliberalism; migration and contemporary European identity; diasporic networks and social memory formation in public space.

Along with Dr.Adi Bharat and Katharine Halls, I am a co-ordinator of the Jewish-Muslim Research Network, which (amongst other events) organises a monthly reading group and seminars comparatively exploring Jewish and Muslim identity, Judaism and Islam and ‘Jewish-Muslim’ relations. Please email me if you would like to join!
