Article Published

After several years of learning how to do scholarship, I’ve finally published an article, and this article recently became available online. It’s title: “Shared Sorrow, Shared Abundance: Water-Waste Flows In Palestinian Literature.” It extends work I did in Jim Holstun’s seminar on the literature of Israel and Palestine and combines it with work I’d also been doing on necropolitics and material studies. I’m acutely aware of the article’s limits but hope its work can contribute in a small way to more sensitive reading and continued discussion  of the works of Palestinian authors  Anton Shammas, Sahar Khalifeh, and Taha Muhammad Ali as well as the Palestinian literature that continues emerges under Israeli occupation and apartheid. Political action is necessary as well. Here in New York, for intellectual workers, protesting Cuomo’s BDS Blacklist is an urgent matter.
