Aitemad Mehanna

Aitemad Muhanna-Matar is a research fellow at the LSE’s Middle East Centre currently conducting a research on Salafist youth in Tunisia and the process of subjectification. In 2013, she managed a regional research project funded by Oxfam-GB and run by the LSE MEC on women’s political participation across the Arab region. Dr Muhanna-Matar's PhD thesis in 2010 examined the effects of the Palestinian Second Intifada on women’s agency and contributed to challenging mainstream liberal conceptions of women’s empowerment. It was published in a book ‘Agency and Gender in Gaza: Masculinity, Femininity and Family during the Second Intifada, by Ashgate in October 2013.
