Associate Professor of History, University of California, Santa Barbara
Sherene Seikaly is an associate professor of history at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is the author of Men of Capital: Scarcity and Economy in Mandate Palestine (Stanford University Press, 2016). She is following the trajectory of her great-grandfather in her forthcoming book titled From Baltimore to Beirut: On the Question of Palestine. His trajectory from nineteenth century mobility across Baltimore and Sudan to twentieth century immobility in Lebanon places the question of Palestine in a global history of race, capital, slavery, and dispossession. She is a co-editor of the Journal of Palestine Studies, senior editor of the Arab Studies Journal, and co-editor of Jadaliyya.
