Dean David Powers announced that Carmen M. K. Gitre will join the faculty in the Department of International Studies this fall. Gitre, who is Egyptian-American, focuses her scholarship on
imperial history, modernity, and culture in the Middle East with particular
emphasis on Egypt. Prior to joining the faculty, she taught at Rutgers
University and was a graduate fellow in the Center for Historical Analysis. Her most
recent article, “Farāh Effendi
Antūn, and the Staging of a ‘New Egypt’,” has been accepted for publication in
the Journal of Semitic
Studies. She is currently working on a book “Performing Modernity:
Theater and Political Culture in Egypt, 1869-1923.”
In addition to offering students major and minor degrees in International Studies, the College of Arts and Sciences offers the Global Awareness Program, a specialization available to students in any of the 33 major degree programs in the college.
