Bayoumi, Soha

Lecturer
Harvard University


I'm a lecturer in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard University. Trained in political theory and philosophy and intellectual history, I work on the question of justice at the intersection of political philosophy, intellectual history and science studies. With a focus on health and medicine, my research addresses the question of health and social justice, biomedical ethics and the links between medicine and politics, with a geographical focus on the Middle East and a special interest in postcolonial and gender studies. In addition to teaching courses on health, medicine and gender, I have also taught courses in European and American intellectual history as well as the intellectual history of the modern and contemporary Middle East. I'm currently finishing a book manuscript (co-authored with Sherine Hamdy, Brown University) on the role of doctors in the Egyptian uprising, and working on another book project on the question of health and social justice and the social roles of doctors in postcolonial Egypt.
