Hanley, Will

Assistant Professor, History
Florida State University


I am Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Florida State University. I studied at the Universities of Saskatchewan, Toronto, and Oxford before taking my doctorate in history at Princeton (2007). I am completing work on a book about the emergence of nationality as a social and legal category in Alexandria between 1880 and 1914. During the 2012-13 academic year, as a Rechtskulturen fellow in Berlin, I am studying the broader institutional history of justice in Egypt between 1875 and 1950. I serve as Associate Editor (Book Reviews, Non-Americas) of the Law and History Review. I am also developing an NEH-funded digital tool (called Prosop) to help historians to collect and organize large volumes of demographic data.
