Jennifer Eggert

Welcome to my Warwick ePortfolio!

I am an Early Career Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study at the University of Warwick. I also teach in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick, where I passed my PhD (with no corrections) in November 2017.

In April 2018, I am a Visiting Researcher in the Department of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder (US). In April 2017, I was a Visiting Fellow in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.

In my PhD research project, which was funded by the Economic and Social Sciences Research Council (ESRC) and the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL), I focused on female fighters, non-state political violence and organisational decision-making during the Lebanese Civil War (1975 - 1990). I am currently revising my PhD thesis into a monograph.

Other topics I have worked on or am currently working on include:

  • women and Islamist extremism (in the so-called 'Islamic State', Al-Qaeda in Iraq and other groups)
  • the 1968 movement and the Lebanese civil war,
  • women/gender and counterextremism/deradicalisation/disengagement,
  • grassroots initatives to counterextremism/deradicalisation/disengagement,
  • portrayals of Muslims in Western media,
  • experiences of migrants crossing the Mediterranean,
  • conducting fieldwork as a parent,
  • diversity in academia.

You can find out more about me, my research and related activities on the sub-pages of this ePortfolio. Feel free to send me an e-mail (or follow me on Twitter), if you would like to be in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!
