Profile picture of K.M.J. (Karène) Sanchez-Summerer, Prof



I am a historian of the Modern Middle East. My research and teaching interests include Christian Arab communities of and in the Middle East Middle East, a relational cultural and social history of Ottoman and Mandate Palestine, and minorities in/ diaspora from the Middle East. I am particularly interested in engaging with multilateral transnational connections, still understudied in favour of national historiographies and periodisation.
