Current Projects

  • Further study of the reception and integration of the Andalusi literary-musical legacy in North Africa. I am particularly interested in the ways that the various nūba traditions have enmeshed the classical Arabic poetic stream in discourses of communal identity, national memory and so on.
  • Co-editing with Jonathan Shannon a forthcoming anthology entitled Echoes of al-Andalus, featuring a range of scholarship on the Andalusian music traditions of the Mediterranean region.
