Bridget Guarasci’s research focuses on the environment as a political imaginary of war and economy in the Middle East. She is currently developing a book manuscript Ecologies of Occupation: Restoring the Marshes in Wartime Iraq that analyzes how the Iraqi exile project to restore the country’s southern marshes, drained by Saddam Hussein, intersected with US and UN occupation strategies for transforming Iraq’s national economy.
