Cherine Hussein is a researcher currently based at Lund University. She completed her PhD in International Relations at the University of Sussex. Her work focuses on the politics of social transformation in the Arab World, with a particular interest in the writings of Antonio Gramsci and Edward Said, as well as the role of organic intellectuals in instigating social change. Previously, she has held postdoctoral research positions at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs in Stockholm, and at the Council for British Research in the Levant’s Kenyon Institute in Jerusalem – where she was also the institute’s Deputy Director. Her publications include, The Re-Emergence of the Single State Solution in Palestine/Israel: Countering an Illusion (London, Routledge: March 2015), and ‘The Single State Alternative in Palestine/Israel’, in a special issue of Conflict, Security and Development which she co-edited with Mandy Turner. Currently, she is working on projects linked to exploring traveling theories; theorising human agency and building communities of resistance; and highlighting emerging counter-hegemonic cultural production in the Arab World.
