Imane got her BA and MA degrees in English literature and civilization from the university of Tlemcen, Algeria. She was rewarded a full scholarship to pursue PhD research at Strathclyde university from the Algerian government.
She is conducting research about how fiction reading may produce harmful effects on readers. Her project entails qualitative analysis using literary criticism and close reading to explain how some controversial novels that have already been connected to some harmful behaviours were manifested.
Imane is currently interested in the theoretical study of reader-response phenomena which imply interdisciplinary approaches from fields such as media studies, literary criticism, narrative persuasion, psychology of aesthetics, and literary ethics.
