AM Candidate in Regional Studies—Middle East

Hannah came to Harvard after spending 14 months in Morocco as a Fulbright Student Researcher, where she studied Moroccan Arabic in Fes and Rabat. In Morocco, she completed a case study of the new Mohammed VI Contemporary and Modern Art Museum in Rabat, closely examining the institutional politics of artistic production, arts education, and censorship since the February 20th movement in 2011. As a 2018 Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellow with the U.S. Department of State, her studies at Harvard will focus on American foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, human rights and refugee affairs, and cultural diplomacy in the MENA region. Hannah received her BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013 with a major in Art History and minor in African Studies, where she completed her art history honors thesis on the 2012 Dak'Art Biennale, after seven months of fieldwork in Dakar, Senegal. Prior to her studies at UNC, Hannah was pursuing a BFA in Photojournalism and BA in Museum Studies and Contemporary Art at the Corcoran College of Art & Design in Washington, D.C.
