I am a PhD candidate in History at Yale University, working on the histories of environment, law, and capitalism in late Ottoman Iraq. My dissertation, “Empire on Edge: Land, Law, and Capital in Gilded Age Basra, 1884-1914,” uses microhistory to explore how individual capitalists shaped the emergence of capitalism and modern state practice by manipulating novel state vocabularies and bureaucratic instruments.

MemberJoshua Rumbaoa Jerome Garcia

I am a Ph.D. Student in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at the Graduate Theological Union and my research concerns the poetics of liminality and hegemony in the literature of the Hebrew Bible and Ugarit. I interrogate these broader lines of historical-critical inquiry at the intersection of Postcolonial Theory and Gender Theory (particularly Masculinity Studies) while aware of my Filipinx-American social location. I hold master’s degrees from Yale University and Boston University and bachelor’s degrees in psychology and biblical studies from George Fox University.
