Caroline is a PhD candidate in the political science department interested in identity politics, security studies, foreign policy, and authoritarian regimes, with regional specialization in the Arab world. Her dissertation compares the current Saudi-led intervention in Yemen with the proxy conflict that took place between Saudi Arabia and Egypt from 1962-67. Through examination of archival documents, regional news sources, social media, and semi-structured interviews, she uses discourse analysis to trace how the Saudi regime’s construction of external threats to the nation has changed over time since the Nasserist period. She participated in July 2017 in the Arab Council for the Social Sciences’ Beirut School on Critical Security Studies in the Arab world. She is also currently an associate fellow at the Center for Humanities at Temple.
