Research Interests

​The first is the virtues of the Holy Land literature in Arabic, composed in the Mamluk and Ottoman periods. In my research on this topic I was exposed to a great number of primary Arabic-language sources in the form of manuscripts found in various libraries around the world. The topic is very important for the study of the evolution of Arabic religious and historical writing in the Middle Ages. My second field of specialization was Sufi(تصوّف) literature in Arabic towards the end of the Ottoman period. In my research on this subject I focused mainly on one of the most prevalent and best-known Sufi schools, known as the Khalwatiyya. My studies contributed to an understanding of the origins of this school and its spread in Jerusalem and its environs during the eighteenth century CE. My third research domain was the study of anecdotes in classical Arabic literature, a type of writing that emerged at the beginning of the seventh century CE. The importance of this research lies in the explanation it provides for the nature of anecdotes as part of literary, folkloristic and even political writing.
