Carminati, Lucia

Graduate Student, School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies
University of Arizona


I am a PhD Candidate at the History department of the University of Arizona. My dissertation is provisionally titled "Port Said, 1859-1922: Migration, Urbanization, and Empire" and traces the social and cultural history of the Egyptian and Mediterranean city of Port Said as the intersection of migratory routes, imperial interests, and urban changes. My research received support from the Fulbright Commission, the Social Science Research Council, the Council for Library and Information Resources, the Zeit Foundation, the American Historical Association, and the University of Arizona. My research interests focus on the social history of the modern Middle East, with an emphasis on Egypt and North Africa, gender, mobilities, and micro-history. After chasing archival trails in Egypt, Great Britain, France, Italy, and Malta, I am currently engaged in writing my dissertation and presenting my ongoing work.
