Rayya El Zein
Rayya El Zein is the Program Manager of the Digital Infrastructure Incubator at CS&S. She comes to the position after a decade of conducting interdisciplinary ethnographic research among artists and activists in Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine. Drawing from performance studies, media studies, and engaged anthropology, her research has centered on creative communities undergoing structural change and examines how practitioners imagine, articulate, and enact futures for their work. She is committed to learning how to decolonize her research and practice and to a continual exploration of how to build solidarity. Rayya is also the Forum Editor at Lateral, the open-access journal of the Cultural Studies Association.
