My doctoral students have worked on a range of topics including medicine and humanitarianism during the Algerian war of independence; social and gender justice-based readings of the Qur'an; the history of the nationalist right in Turkey; the end of the British empire in the Arabian Gulf; contemporary critical thought in North Africa; the history of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 1973; historiography and history teaching in mandate Palestine; the cultural and political history of news and communications technology in colonial Algeria, and social memory in contemporary Algeria. I am always happy to hear from potential DPhil and Masters students interested in topics relating to the modern and contemporary Middle East, Africa, France and the French empire, nationalism, imperialism, or Islamic history since 1700.
