Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of Michigan
I am an anthropologist of religion and media with expertise in the Middle East. I am also a visual and multimodal ethnographer. My research is informed by a conceptual attunement to difference and emancipatory politics within authoritarian contexts. My first book explores the role Islamic television played in Egypt’s 2011 revolution. My new ethnography on the intersections of Nubian digital activism, race, indigeneity, and social memory in Egypt takes the form of multimodal collaborations in film and animation.
My upcoming book explores Islamic television channels as sites of critique in the revolutionary Egypt of the 2011 uprising. My newest research revolves around two topics: a Henry Luce funded collaborative project with Emory University on the global politics of “moderate Islam” and a co-creative, multi-modal project on Nubian cultural activism and material heritage across Egypt and Sudan, funded by the Humanities Collaboratory.
