Online Tutor, Creative Writing BA(Hons) (online)

Sabrin Hasbun is an Italian-Palestinian transnational writer. She has always had to mediate between two cultures and every day for her is a journey across borders. She studied literary theory at the University of Pisa, the Sorbonne University and Bath Spa University where she is now waiting for her Viva for a PhD in Creative Writing and History in collaboration with Exeter University and with AHRC funding support.

Her research focuses on using creative non-fiction and multilingual writing to explore histories of marginalised groups. She has created, organised, and facilitated events, workshops, and working groups to highlight and disseminate the importance of practice-based disciplines to negotiate complex identities. She has recently worked as a writer, editor, translator, and trainer for several institutions including the Holburne Museum in Bath, the Embassy of Palestine to the Holy See, and the international journal Transnational Literature. She has joined Falmouth University as an online tutor in September 2021. Sabrin is looking to publish her first book, the family memoir Wait for Her.
