Research Interests

Hoda Elhadary is currently working on a research that focuses on the interdisciplinary studies as the trend now is to link literary studies to the different disciplines believing that there are no clear-cut lines hence the blurred boundaries. The first research project that Dr. Elhadary is working on is examining the relation between literature and urban anthropology as exemplified in different literary works written in English and Arabic. The second main research project concerns the nature of ethnic identities with the aim of writing a policy paper to enhance the status of the different ethnicities in the Middle East.
