PROFILE

Dr. Anne de Jong is an assistant professor Anthropology of Conflict with a region expertise on the Middle East (Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Bahrain). Prioritizing subaltern everyday perspectives, her research interest center on violence - nonviolence, radical activism and social movements, human rights, oppression and resistance, queer action and anti-colonial struggles.

For her PhD (2011, SOAS) she conducted a 19 month fieldwork research in the Occupied Palestinian Territories including East-Jerusalem and Gaza. She currently works on 1) human rights defenders and resistance in Bahrain , 2) Syrian refugees in the EU, and 3) Palestinian solidairty activism and radical anti-racism activism. 

Born from the necessity of doing "fieldwork under fire", research ethics and innovative methodology has grown central to her work (De Jong, 2011; 2015) which is also reflected in her teachings.
