Research Interests North Africa; colonialism and empire; oral history; gender and sexuality


"I am broadly interested in the intersections of gender, violence, and national imagining in the 19th- and 20th-century French empire. My current project employs oral histories with former female guerrilla fighters to examine the role of gender in the construction of sexuality, ideology, and sovereignty by the French occupying forces and the Front de Libération Nationale during the Algerian War for Independence."
