Rahaf Aldoughli is a lecturer in Middle East and North African Studies at Lancaster University whose areas of research expertise include identifying the ideological borrowings between European and Arab nationalism, the rise of the nation-state in the Middle East, the Syria crisis, militarism and the construction of masculinity in the Arab world.
She is currently working on her book “Constructing the Nation: Masculinism and Gender Bias in Syrian Nationalism”, which looks at the idealisation of militarism in Syrian culture and constitutions with particular focus on the origin of the Ba’ath ideology in the thought of Syrian nationalists.
