Session C5030 (Usurpation: The Untold Stories of the Iraq War 2003-Present), 2017
Familial and Personal Journeys With US Foreign Policy on Iraq: In my discussion, I plan to first discuss the impact of recent developments in Iraqi history on my extended family in Mosul, Tikrit, and Baghdad. I then intend to discuss my interactions with U.S. foreign policy in Iraq since 1990, and how such interactions have affected my career and politics. Finally, I shall close by discussing my prior research on the effects of the 2003 invasion of Iraq on state institutions, cultural patronage, and education.
