About Mohamed Gamal-Eldin

I am a historian of Modern Egypt, who is interested in questions related to the built environment, urban history, architecture, social history and environmental ecology of urban centers in 19th and early 20th century Egypt, the Middle East and globally. My dissertation was an interdisciplinary project on the Suez Canal cities from 1856-1936. As such, it is an environmental, architectural and infrastructural history that looks at the evolution of the canal towns and provides a lens into the social history of those who resided in the towns. I'm interested in Science and Technology Studies, Environmental History and Urban Planning in the Middle East and globally.
