Teaching

I currently teach the following modules:  

(1) Palestine in Transition: World War I and Beyond

A year-long special subject seminar for third year history students that runs in parallel with a dissertation seminar. This is a social history course that looks at the lives of ordinary Palestinians across the tumultous years of the late Ottoman Empire and the British Mandate. The course tracks the lives of a number of individuals who left behind memoirs, letters and diaries. The period around the First World War is looked at in particular detail as a time of great transformation.

(2) The Middle East and North Africa since 1908 

A short period module for second year history students introducing the history of the region, co-taught with Professor Martin Evans and Dr Hilary Kalmbach

(3) Religion and Culture in the Middle East and North Africa, 1700-2000 

An elective for first and second year students from all departments, co-taught with Dr Hilary Kalmbach.

(4) The Early Modern World

I contribute lectures on the Islamic world to this core first-year history module.
