Al Hussein Technical University, Jordan
With inter-disciplinary/non-disciplinary ambitions that sometimes get her lost but very enthusiastic, some of her main interests are the relationship between migration and exile, and whatever that may bring in the way of sensory nostalgia, memory and a search for home; the arts in anthropology; and food, in all its facets. She was a part of the field school in 2017 where her research focused on the olfactory memory of Gozitans and whether that could be traced geographically. Having lived in Santiago, Chile for longer than she thought she would be, she is currently living in Jordan, which has been summoning her back for quite some time. Gida is now teaching at Al Hussein Technical University in Amman, and dips her fingers, and toes, into other things that may come her way.
