I am a Teaching Assistant at the Higher Institute of Applied Languages of Moknine (University of Monastir, Tunisia) and a member of the Laboratory on Approaches to Discourse at the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences of Sfax (University of Sfax, Tunisia). I currently teach English Literature and Translation (Arabic/English). My main fields of interest are 20th Century American Poetry, Modern Manuscript Studies, Archival Works and Culture Studies. I am a former Fulbright Visiting Scholar to Indiana University Bloomington and Smith College Massachusetts, where I worked closely with Sylvia Plath’s Collections.
