I am a PhD student in Michigan State’s History Department.
My field of speciality is the history of Africa in the Indian Ocean. I am compelled by histories of connections, mobilities, and quotidian lives. My current research examines migration between Zanzibar and Oman during the twentieth century.
In my dissertation project, I use a combination of oral history interviews, archival documents, and privately held documents and materials to answer two central research questions: How did migrants’ actions create a transnational community? and how did changing laws, regimes, and economic situations over the course of the twentieth century affect migrant families?
