Natalie El-Eid is a Ph.D. student in English specializing in 20th and 21st Century U.S. Multiethnic Literatures and Cultures, with a focus on the Arab Diaspora. Her research interests are centered on transnationalism, war, trauma, memory, gender, and sexuality. Across various types of media, Natalie focuses on representations of the diasporic identity in the United States post-WWII, as well as Western constructions of Arab culture, in particular, Arabs in America post-9/11. Other areas of particular interest to her are the contrasts and constructions of "whiteness" versus "otherness" in the United States, racial/cultural privilege, and human rights.
