Rose is a current Ph.D. student in the School of Middle Eastern & North African Studies at the University of Arizona with a minor in English Rhetoric and Composition. She is interested in Islam and modernity within Middle Eastern societies and cultures and the politics of representation within media and visual culture as a result of war and religious and social development, particularly in Iraq and in the diaspora. Looking at the broader area of gender studies, she is also interested in the way historical context and events have influenced the construction of urban politics in response to social and political change.

Her research interests include colonialism/post-colonialism, nationalism, gender, patriarchy, social development, war, and globalization in the context of creating identity, memory and social participation through historical representations in popular culture and visual media.
