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.
Eyad Houssami makes theatre and has participated in the revitalization of an ancient organic farm in southern Lebanon.
