Mireille Rebeiz

Assistant Professor, Department of European Languages, Literatures and Cultures

In my teaching, I focus on texts from the Levant and North Africa written in Arabic, French, or English. I offer courses on: the intersection between law and literature especially in the context of war and terrorism; postcolonial cultures in France and the rise of a hybrid culture and a new generation of street-artists, rap and hip-hop musicians, writers and film-makers.

In my book project, I examine the works produced by Lebanese women writers of French expression in response to the civil war in Lebanon. I draw on a range of theoretical approaches, notably in the fields of women and gender studies, feminist studies and female disability studies, postcolonial studies, trauma studies, narratology and structuralism, postmodernism and magical realism.
