Thesis title:
Cultural Propaganda in Britain’s Informal Empire: The British Council in the Persian Gulf c. 1939 - 1971.

PhD Research

I am interested in the cultural propaganda activities of the British in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf with a focus on the work of the British Council, particularly in regards to education. Bahrain and Kuwait are likely to be my main two case studies.
