Swalif Collective Book is here!

Few days can be so emotional as today. I am overwhelmed to get my hands on the absolutely gorgeous book (contributors copy) by @swalif_co aramexed to me from Abu Dhabi to Singapore where i am PhD-ing. It is an honour to contribute my two baizas on defining ‘Desi-Khaleeji’ as a conceptual category to articulate South Asian belonging in the Gulf

What a star cast with Gaith AbdullaNadeen Dakkak among others writing their thoughts and experiences in this amazing creative-critical intervention into understanding a Khaleej that we do not imagine in the news cycle.

Salem AlSuwaidi and team, Shukran Jazeelan!
