About Eyad Houssami

My work focuses on culture, ecology, and publications. My current research project, supported by an Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) award and as a PhD candidate at the University of Leeds, considers decolonial transmission and the history of agricultural and environmental education in the universities of post-Ottoman Beirut. I am the editor of Arabic and English editions of Doomed by Hope: Essays on Arab Theatre (Pluto Press, Dar Al Adab 2012) and was editor-at-large of the bilingual literary and academic journal, Portal 9. My plays include Mama Butterfly and Battery Dying Flying Submarine.
