Irene Fernandez Ramos is a PhD candidate within the Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS) at SOAS, University of London. In 2012, she started a PhD thesis about the impact that movement restrictions imposed over the Palestinian population after the Oslo Accords—understood in physical, psychological and social terms—have had on the representations of space in dramatic production. Her working title is "Performing Immobility: Space, the Individual-Collective Body and the Narratives of Oppression in Contemporary Palestinian Theatre."
