Thomas DeGeorges
Assistant Professor, International Studies and Gulf Studies, American University of Sharjah

Dr. DeGeorges’ (PhD, Harvard University; BA, Brooklyn College (CUNY)) interests include modern Middle East history, North Africa, colonial history, and modern Europe. His research focuses on understanding how colonial and post-colonial governments shaped social policy towards military veterans in North Africa. His doctoral research involved Tunisian colonial veterans and he recently completed a post-doctoral scholarship in Algeria working on a comparative project involving social policy directed towards Algerian colonial veterans and Algerian moujahidine. Dr. DeGeorges is currently preparing one article for publication on Tunisian veterans, as well as a conference paper on May 8, 1945 (Victory in Europe day) seen from an Algerian perspective for the upcoming MESA conference. He also enjoys exploring the urban fabric of North African cities, such as Tunis, Tangier, Marrakesh, and Algiers and has spent countless hours in each city appreciating their unique architectural aspects. He is faculty advisor for INSA (International Studies Student Association) at AUS.
