Fahrenthold, Stacy

Assistant Professor, History
California State University, Stanislaus


My research focuses on the migration of Syrian, Lebanese, and Palestinian Arabs from the Ottoman Empire in the twentieth century's first decades, and examines how Arab migrants impacted the politics of their homeland from abroad. My first book manuscript is a history of Syrian politics in the Americas from the 1908 Revolution through the early French Mandate. I am now writing a deeper history of the idea of "Muslim bans" in the WWI-era Americas, and my greater interests are in border assertion/securitization, the criminalization of Middle Eastern migrants, and Arab labor migration in the Atlantic basin (both Americas, north and south). At Stanislaus State I manage the Sarguis Modern Assyrian Heritage project, a project-learning public history project documenting Assyrian and Assyrian American history in California's central valley.
