A bit about me: I’m 28, I’m half-Dutch, half-Egyptian, and I grew up in Lusaka, Zambia.
I’m living in England at the moment, teaching and researching International Political Economy at the University of Warwick (find me here: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/pais/people/salem/). I just finished my PhD on the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Marxism, and political economy.
I have a thing for postcolonialism and Marxism (even though they don’t always get along), feminism, history, and sociology (my first love).
I am grateful to Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Chandra Mohanty, Lila abu Lughod and Joan Scott. Also Foucault, Fanon, Gramsci and Edward Said. You will find that I have a huge crush on Chandra Mohanty and Frantz Fanon.
I also love cupcakes. And cake. Carrot cake especially. And ice cream. Oh, and watermelon!
