M.A. Student

I am an M.A. student in the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the University of Arizona. I'm interested in the 20th century history of the Middle East, and especially the social history of nation-building and state formation in the aftermath of the League of Nations' mandates. I am currently researching the social and political history of military recruitment in Iraq, as well as the politics of liquor-licensing in Baghdad during the 1920s. My broader research interests include Social History, Nations and Nationalism, Colonialism and Post-Colonialism, and Forced Migration.
