Cornwell, Graham

PhD Student, History
Georgetown University


I am a doctoral candidate in the History Department at Georgetown University. His dissertation project, "Sweetening the Pot: A History of Tea and Taste in Northwest Africa, 1850-1960" examines how imported Chinese green tea and refined sugar from the Americas became a staple of the diet and a symbol of national and regional identity from Morocco to Mali. My work has been supported by an ACLS Mellon Dissertation Completion Fellowship, an American Institute for Maghrib Studies Long-Term Research Grant, a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Grant. I am also a contributing editor on the Ottoman History Podcast.
