Research Institute for Islamic Culture and Thought
Alireza Qaeminia (born 1964), the Professor of Philosophy at Research Institute for Culture and Thought, has taught at Princeton since 2003. Jamal was born in Oakland, California, and lived in Modesto, California, as a child. At age 10, her parents decided the family should move to Ramallah, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, to learn more about their culture and their religion, Islam. Jamal returned to the United States for college.
She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of California-Los Angeles and her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. She taught at Columbia University before arriving at Princeton. Her most recent book, “Of Empires and Citizens: Pro-American Democracy or No Democracy at All,” was published in 2012 by Princeton University Press.
She teaches on topics including politics of the Middle East, democracy in the Middle East, gender and Islam, and comparative politics. She is also the principal investigator for the Arab Barometer project, which measures public opinion in the Arab world.
These musings are drawn from an interview.
