  • Middle East Scholar Carmen Gitre Joins Faculty

    April 29, 2011

    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.
