Expert Profile


I joined the Department of English Language and Literature at International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) on 1 June 2010. The courses I have taught at IIUM include South Asian Literature in English, Islamic Literature in English, Twentieth-Century English Literature and World Literature. I have supervised PhD and Masters theses mainly in the field of English and Postcolonial Literature and Feminist Comparative Literature. My work at IIUM manifests an interplay between English and postcolonial literatures. 
 

I have recently completed a book project (with Mohammad A. Quayum) on Bangladeshi Literature in English. I edited (with Mohammad A. Quayum) and contributed to A Feminist Foremother: Critical Essays on Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain which was published by Orient Longman (Orient BlackSwan) in 2017.  My articles have appeared in some of the best journals in the field of literature, including the Journal of Commonwealth Literature, Journal of Postcolonial Writing, Journal of Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies, Paedagogica Historica, South Asia Research, Hawwa and Asiatic. Currently, I am working on a project on Atiya Fyzee (1877-1967) and Zeyneb Hanoum (1883-1923) and looking at the experiences of their travels to metropolitan London. 
 

I have presented papers at conferences organised by the Modern Language Association (MLA), International Virginia Woolf Society and European Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (EACLALS) as well as at those held in Birmingham, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, London, Osaka, Oxford, Shrewsbury, Sydney, Washington DC and other cities. 
 

I previously taught at the Department of English of the University of Dhaka and had postdoctoral research stints at the University of Heidelberg and at the Centre for Contemporary Theory in Baroda, India. 
 

My PhD thesis “Introducing Rokeya’s Plural Feminism” completed at the University of Portsmouth in 2007 focused on comparing the South Asian writer Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain’s (1880-1932) works with those of Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-97), Virginia Woolf (1882-1941), Attia Hosain (1913-98) and Monica Ali (1967-). My interest in South Asian Literature was further stimulated when I researched South Asian Muslim Feminist Literature during my postdoctoral work at Heidelberg in 2009-2010. 
 

During my PhD years, I supply taught at British primary and secondary schools and team taught a course titled “Text in the City” at the University of Portsmouth. 
 

I write literary pieces for The Daily Star, Bangladesh’s largest circulating English-language newspaper, and for English Literature @ Portsmouth
 

I welcome research students wishing to work in the broad fields of English and Comparative/Postcolonial Literature, Islamic Literature, Feminist Literature and Islamic Perspectives on Literary Studies.
