Dr. Roula-Maria Dib is a widely published scholar and creative writer. Her research in literature has been featured in many prestigious publications, and she is the author of two books, Simply Being (Chiron 2021) and Jungian Metaphor in Modernist Literature (Routledge 2020), which has been shortlisted as finalist for the internationally acclaimed IAJS awards. Dr. Dib is also the founder and editor-in-chief of literary and arts journal Indelible, as well as the director of Indelible Evenings (virtual literary event series) and Psychreative (a virtual salon for creatives with a background in depth psychology). She is a member of the Poetry Society, the British Association for Modernist Studies, the International Association for Jungian Studies, and the Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies.

Dr. Dib’s research interests lie at the interstices of psychoanalysis, mythology, modernism, and feminism, which involve frequent forays into Jungian psychology, interdisciplinary works on the literary and visual arts, and the bridge between modernist literature and science. She has presented papers and chaired panels at several international conferences, some which she has co-organized.

Besides reading and writing, she enjoys traveling, photography, and cooking (she is the author of the food blog Beyond Zucchini).
