I'm adapting my thesis into a monograph, titled Hydrofictions: Water, Power and Politics in Israeli and Palestinian Literature. I argue for the necessity of recognising water’s critical importance to any theorisation of modern and contemporary literatures and cultures from Israel/Palestine, and foreground water as a crucial new area of research in scholarship on resource fictions. This project draws on a wide range of disciplines, including Science and Technology Studies, political ecology and environmental history.
I am developing plans for a future monograph on environment and climate in Israeli and Palestinian literature. I also intend to extend my work on 'hydrofictions' more widely, examining literary and cultural responses to water scarcity in a comparative, global context.
