Lubin is currently working on two projects. His book, The U.S. War on Terror is forthcoming from the "American Studies Now" series at UC Press. This book explores the War on Terror as a features of American imperial culture and racial capitalism. He is also writing a history of Black American cultural production in Cairo, Egypt during the 1960s, an era that saw Cairo develop as the capitol of Third World politics and Afro-Arab political and cultural collaborations. This project explores ways that African American music, visual art, and poetry were transformed by, and were transformative of, the Third World, Afro-Arab politics of Cairo.
