2nd year student
Fatima Mohie-Eldin graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston University in 2015, where she majored in International Relations. With minors in Religion and Muslim Societies as well, she chose to research the intersection of Islamism and politics in Egypt for her award-winning senior honors thesis, which focused on the Salafist Nour Party, including the party's religious underpinnings, formation, and prospects for future political participation. She has had excerpts of her research published on Muftah.org and in the Al Noor Journal of Middle Eastern Studies at Boston College. Fatima is excited to be joining the Hagop Kevorkian Center where she hopes to focus her future research on the role of women and gender in Middle Eastern societies, the intersections of state and civil society, Islam and politics, and the social role of religious communities, particularly within Egypt and Turkey, where she previously lived from 2013-2014.
