Current Research

Having published on political Islam and existentialism, and dissertated on Malay popular culture from a Lacanian-Marxist perspective, Fuad is currently researching the relationship between psychoanalysis, coloniality and subalterity for critical insights on the post-colonial challenges of globalizing mental health. He draws primarily from Lacanian and post-colonial theories to critically analyse subjectivity, 'the mind,' and 'psychological well-being' as historically and materially specific categories rather than abstract universals. He is also looking into the contradictory spatio-temporalities of digitization to reflect on how deep mediatization is radically transforming the notion of subaltern speech.
