Kristin V. Monroe, PhD., is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Hajja Razia Sharif Sheikh Islamic Studies Professor in the College of Arts and Sciences. Her research has focused on experiences of mobility, political violence, and citizenship in Beirut, Lebanon in both historical and contemporary eras. In her book, The Insecure City: Space, Mobility, and Power (Rutgers University Press, 2016) she makes an important contribution to urban anthropology by showing how practices of spatial mobility in the city do more than simply reflect social differences, but are also a means through which an uneven and insecure urban citizenship is produced. A Career Enhancement Fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation supported Dr. Monroe in writing the book which was selected for inclusion in the Knowledge Unlatched open access program. She served as a Visiting Research Scholar with the Islamic Bioethics Project at Georgetown University in Qatar from 2017-2018 and published findings from this research in a book chapter “Reproductive Technologies in Muslim Contexts” in the Handbook of Contemporary Islam and Muslim Lives (Springer, 2019). Dr. Monroe’s current research, supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, explores manhood, labor, and migration across the Syrian warscape.
