Ahmad Qais Munhazim
I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science. My research spans the fields of critical international relations, women, gender and sexuality studies, comparative politics and migration studies with a regional focus in the Middle East and South Asia. Specifically, I study how war rearranges the conduct, performances and understandings of gender and sexuality among diasporas of war. My research places every day people’s experiences of war and displacement at the center of international relations, with a particular focus on Muslim women and queer and trans Muslims. As an interdisciplinary researcher, I conduct multi-method qualitative research including ethnography, interviews, focus groups and interpretive methods.
