Area(s) of Research Interest: My research explores the burgeoning graffiti and street art scene in urban Jordan, within which youth are attempting to create spaces of visibility and leisure against the backdrop of neoliberal urban transformation and refugee migrations. I examine a broad range of sites such as DIY art galleries, state and corporate-sponsored public arts festivals, and Palestinian refugee camp-cities in order to elucidate how creative production in these sites responds to ongoing social and spatial inequalities.
