Harriet Sara Walker and Mary Sophia Walker Associate Professor of Humanities

Trained in both literature and political science, my current research focuses on contemporary North African cinema and literature. Since December 2010, the region has known tremendous political, social and cultural change and I show how they are reflected in the works of North African writers, directors and artists.
