In Brief

My name is Benjamin Geer. I do sociological and historical research, and I develop software at the Digital Humanities Lab at the University of Basel. In the past I’ve served as Visiting Assistant Professor and Associate Director of the Middle East Studies Center at the American University in Cairo, and taught Arabic at the University of Tübingen. I did my PhD in Middle East Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.
