Modern Middle East and North Africa, U.S. Engagement with the Arab World

Experiences in various parts of the Islamic world has afforded Stacy E. Holden a multitude of experiences that she integrates into her teaching of the modern Middle East and North Africa. She lived in Morocco for three years and researched The Politics of Food in Modern Morocco (University Press of Florida, 2009). She took classes at the Institut Bourguiba in Tunisia. She worked at the US Embassy in Mauritania. She surveyed Mamluk mosques and other historic monuments in Egypt. She interviewed architects who design new buildings in a national style Mali. She edited documents that show the development of modern Iraq. She traced memories of Ottoman rule in Greece. Currently, she is reassessing Edith Wharton’s travelogue In Morocco (1920) and American perceptions of European imperialism during and immediately after World War I.
