Powerful metaphors tend to trespass the borders of language, disciplines, and media; my research follows the migration of images across national divides, textual and visual cultures, as well as geographical centers. My first book project, Reaching for the Far-Fetched, uncovers a rupture in cultural history, namely the absence of futurist narratives in Palestinian and Israeli cultures, on the one hand, and its abundance over the last two decades, on the other hand. My second project, Shatature: Mapping Palestinian Cultural Capital, equally undertakes a broad cultural-historical viewpoint, as it tracks the transnational network of many segregated Palestinian diasporic communities across the globe, using large digital database I am building.
