Associate Professor

Research Interests

I am currently working on reading Saudi Novels and their circulation in the world literary system. I would like to pay particular attention to the role the local/global dynamic and its relation to coloniality. This interest was the initial impetus for my research on comparative Arabic literary criticism. Having produced research on early modern comparative Arabic literary criticism, I am now ready to start exploring Saudi literary studies and wording the Saudi novel. My background in Latin American literature is proving to be an asset as I am beginning to notice overlapping concerns.

Research Interests

My research is primarily concerned with how communicative meanings can be encoded prosodically, and how prosodic evidence can be incorporated into formal grammar. In particularly, I am interested in how information structure and prosody interact in Saudi dialects. I am also concerned with how word order is reflected in syntax. More recently, I have developed an interest in the understanding of pragmatic competence of Saudi learners of English, and binomials in Saudi dialects.
