Dannies, Kate

Phd Candidate, History
Georgetown University


Kate Dannies is a PhD candidate in history at Georgetown University. Her research interests center on gender, family, institutions, and conflict during the Late Ottoman period. Her dissertation, “Breadwinner Soldiers: Gender, Welfare, and Citizenship in the Ottoman First World War”, examines the Ottoman First World War through the framework of gender and family. Based on Ottoman and Arabic primary sources, the dissertation analyzes how gendered kinship relations shaped mobilization policy and the lived experience of total war in the Ottoman Empire, and explores how the institutionalization of gendered kinship relations during the war shaped post-Ottoman approaches to the family, citizenship, and social policy.
