Mehal Krayem

Mehal is a PhD survivor, freelance writer and status-quo-disruptor by day and froyo connoisseur by night. Her research interests lie in pop culture, religion and gender. When she's not reminding students why the social sciences are a totally legitimate field that ought to be taken very seriously, she's drowning her postgrad woes in mafroukeh or chocolate...quite often both. Mehal knows it's only a matter of time before Nadine Labaki writes a feature film inspired by her brilliance...if only she'd reconsider the restraining order. Mehal is an editor at Sajjeling. Her thoughts on life, love and all things philosophical and cultural can be found at or you can follow her on twitter @mehalkrayem
