Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



My research will explore the social, cultural and political manifestations of sectarian identities in mandatory and monarchical Iraq (1918-1958), looking specifically at how processes of colonialism and state and nation building facilitated the reconfiguration and politicisation of Sunni and Shi'i Iraqi identities. Before beginning my PhD, I received an MA in Middle Eastern History from SOAS (2016) and a BA (Hons.) in history from Queen Mary University of London (2014).
