Michelle Campos is Associate Professor of Modern Middle Eastern History at the University of Florida. She earned her PhD in 2003 from Stanford University, after which she taught in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Cornell University. Dr. Campos has lived and done research in Israel/Palestine, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon, and her areas of interest include the late Ottoman Empire, the social history of historical Palestine, Muslim-Non-Muslim relations, urban history and social networks.
Dr. Campos’s first book, Ottoman Brothers: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Early-Twentieth Century Palestine, explores the development of Ottoman collective identity in the aftermath of the July 1908 Ottoman revolution, tracing how Muslims, Christians, and Jews defined, practiced, and contested the contours of imperial citizenship and local belonging. Dr. Campos’s research also has been published in the International Journal of Middle East Studies, Jerusalem Quarterly File, and various edited books.
