Willingness to take PhD students
Adam Ramadan’s research lies at the intersection between political and cultural geography. His work addresses geopolitics from the level of everyday, non-elite lives, seeking to understand how ordinary people understand and negotiate their position within broader geopolitical dynamics. He has focused particularly on refugees and the spaces of refugee camps as geopolitical sites, bodies and lives. His doctoral work at Oxford was based on almost six months of fieldwork in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. Specifically, he sought to understand how Palestinian identities are produced and reproduced in exile, how refugee camps are constructed as national, political and cultural spaces, and how Palestinian refugees negotiate national geographies of exclusion and regional geographies of conflict in their everyday lives.
Dr Ramadan welcomes enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers in his areas of interest.
