Institutional Affiliation:  French institute of Near East

Bio:  I pursued a PhD on Iraq and Syria during the 1950s (publication in 2021 at AUC Press) discovering the monarchy in colonial legacies. As CNRS researcher, I then conducted research on political and social history of the Middle East (mostly Egypt, Iraq and Syria) and started new fieldworks in Southern Africa. I currently work on the establishment of borders in these two areas. Since September, I became director of contemporary studies in Ifpo.

Current research projects on modern monarchy:

I mostly study Ndebele kings, Egyptian khedives and Hashemites in Iraq.
