Alyn Hine

Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoc Resarch Fellow, 2014

Alyn Hine is currently working on a project called 'Expressions of Cultural Identity among Antiochian Orthodox Christians in Lebanon,' which attempts to analyse a narrative of identity for the Antiochian Orthodox through their literature. Although the project concentrates on modern literature, it also attempts to locate ideas of origin through pre-modern literature. Having written his PhD thesis (SOAS) on the presence of Russian literature in the works of Mikhail Naimy, Alyn is also interested in the interaction of Russian and Arabic literature in the modern era and how this literary dialogue helped to construct intellectual and artistic ideas in both areas.
