UMN Sociology PhD Candidate Miray Philips will present, "Transnational Politics of Christian Persecution."

About the Speaker

Miray's research explores the transnational politics, meaning, and memory of violence and suffering. She is especially interested in how religion and rights shape interpretations of violence and chart trajectories for mobilization. Her dissertation explores how the plight of Middle East Christians, and specifically Coptic Egyptian Christians, has become a contested category of political concern in U.S. foreign policy advocacy.
