Shira Robinson works on the social and cultural history of the Modern Middle East, with an emphasis on colonialism, citizenship, nationalism, and cultures of militarism after World War I. She is currently revising her manuscript, Liberal Dispossession: Palestinian Citizenship under Military Rule, 1948-1967, which examines the Israeli state's imposition of military rule on the Palestinian Arabs who remained within its borders after 1948. This book is based on her dissertation, which in 2006 won the Halpern Biennial Dissertation Award from the Association for Israel Studies. Professor Robinson's research has been funded by the Fulbright Institute, the Social Science Research Council, the Mellon Foundation, and the Palestinian American Research Center. Affiliated with GW's Institute for Middle East Studies, she arrived in 2007 after two years on the faculty at the University of Iowa and one year as Visiting Fellow at the Davis Center for Historical Studies at Princeton University.
