My doctoral research has focused on migrants’ everyday experiences of Italian immigration law. Between 2009 and 2011 I conducted 19 months ethnographic fieldwork in Bologna, Italy. I conducted multi-sited fieldwork tracing migrants and their families in the everyday processes of becoming and staying “legal”. My research interests include the anthropology of the state, migration, law and informality. While I believe that anthropology offers an essential contribution to understanding the world around us, I also think that a range of disciplinary perspectives is necessary in order to engage with the big questions that contemporary societies face. LSE100 offers an exciting opportunity for both teachers and students to meet this challenge.

I’m a PhD Candidate in the International History department where I’m looking at U.S. withdrawal plans from the Vietnam War. Specifically, I’m trying to explain why the Secretaries of Defence were leading advocates for withdrawal. I returned to LSE after being an undergraduate here (BSc International Relations and History). In the meantime, I studied at the Harvard Kennedy School where I earned a Master’s in Public Policy specialising in International Security and Political Economics and worked in a range of public policy roles, including in philanthropy, think-tanks, NGOs and at NATO. To quote Jeffrey Sachs (I’m a fan), “I love the concept of LSE” and I think LSE100 embodies that concept, namely it is a university where we can become social scientists rather than experts in our narrow, specialized field. I believe this is an intellectually exciting and rewarding thing to be part of.

I have an interdisciplinary academic background within political science – starting off in Politics, moving on to International Relations and now completing my PhD in the Government Department, combining the studies of comparative European governments with public policy and political identity. I have found it interesting and useful to analyse topics by drawing on approaches from different disciplines. It makes sense for students of LSE, an institution specialising in the social sciences, to develop an interdisciplinary and well-rounded understanding of the social sciences. LSE100 in particular allows every student to contribute to a comprehensive evaluation of critical issues in contemporary social sciences.

My research has focused on what works in promoting gender equality in government institutions and society more broadly. My PhD comprised an ethnographic and historical study of social change in the Zambian Copperbelt, where I became fluent in Bemba. More recently, I returned Southern Africa to explore how maternal health care is effectively promoted at national and district level. Besides this fieldwork and lecturing on international development at the LSE, I have worked for a range of institutions, including ActionAid The Gambia, the Chronic Poverty Research Centre and the Financial Times. Out of the office, I am a keen runner.

I completed my PhD in International Relations at LSE. My doctoral research was on understanding the interaction between international norms on ethnic and territorial rights and the ethnicist conceptions of territorial identity. In doing this I focused on the Kurdish case. I am currently preparing this research for publication as a monograph with the University of Pennsylvania Press. I have been teaching LSE100 for three years and I have also taught a number of courses in the Government and International Relations departments at LSE. Together with my LSE100 work, I am working as a research fellow at the LSE Middle East Centre where I lead a research project that investigates the role of international actors (particularly the UN) in enhancing women’s rights after military intervention in Kurdistan-Iraq.

I have been at LSE for ten years now (in different guises!). I received a BSc Sociology in 2006 and an MSc Human Rights in 2007. I am currently finalising a PhD on political reconciliation and collective memory in Cambodia, based on a year of ethnographic fieldwork in Phnom Penh and Anlong Veng. My broader research focus encompasses human rights, transitional justice, nationalism, memorialisation, qualitative research methods and social theory. LSE100 is the perfect home for my interdisciplinary teaching and research interests. I’m also a massive Spurs fan.

In addition to teaching at LSE100, I am co-founder and editor of Euro Crisis in the Press| and Associate to the Southern Europe International Affairs Programme of LSE IDEAS. My doctoral research in the Department of Government was a comparative historical analysis on civil-military relations from a public policy angle. My case-studies were Portugal and Spain throughout most of the twentieth century. I am currently preparing the publication of a monograph based on my doctoral thesis: and Associate to the Southern Europe International Affairs Programme of LSE IDEAS. My doctoral research in the Department of Government was a comparative historical analysis on civil-military relations from a public policy angle. My case-studies were Portugal and Spain throughout most of the twentieth century. I am currently preparing the publication of a monograph based on my doctoral thesis:Iberian Military Politics: Controlling the Armed Forces during Dictatorship and Democratisation (2014, London: Palgrave Macmillan). Previously, I did an MSc in Public Policy and Administration at LSE and two Spanish bachelor degrees in Economics and in Marketing. I have taught Political Science and before that I have worked in the automotive sector for 5 years. LSE100 seems to me a great opportunity to make use of my multidisciplinary background and to contribute to a very innovative and ambitious teaching project.

I’m a Canadian living in Britain studying the United States. My doctoral research focuses on U.S. foreign policy making in the early-to-mid Twentieth Century, specifically the career of former Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles.  I examine the intersection of personality, ideology, politics, and institutions in the creation and implementation of foreign policy. Beyond this, I’m interested in contemporary American and Canadian politics, LGBT rights, and urban geography. Along with LSE100 I also teach HY208: The History of the United States since 1783 in the International History Department and have previously taught courses on American culture and Civil Rights movements at King’s College London.
