Henry Gorman

Henry Gorman is a fifth year doctoral student working under Paul Kramer. He studies interactions between Americans, Europeans, Arabs, and Turks in the Middle East during the 19th and early 20th centuries. He is particularly interested in the effect of local power relations on Americans' production of knowledge about the Middle East for their own countrymen, the translation of American concepts for Middle Eastern audiences by American visitors and their local allies, and the role of interactions between Americans and Arabs in the emergence of secularist, nationalist, revolutionary, and religious movements in the Levant.
