I currently head the ERC-funded project SYRASP (“The Prison Narratives of Assad’s Syria”) at the Forum Transregionale Studien in Berlin, Germany.
Having completed my training and most of my academic career outside Germany, I am happy to have the opportunity to join AGYA to work with new collaborators and reflect critically together on the dynamics of Arab-German academic exchange.
