Research Interests

Amy chiefly studies Islamic communities in the United States — specifically, comparing post 9-11 experiences with the first five historic waves of Muslim migration to the U.S. In this realm, her dissertation research finds her investigating how growing up in a Western, non-Muslim society has impacted young Muslim-Americans’ perceptions of and expectations for marriage. She’s also interested in the history of Islamic societies in the Middle East (particularly after the end of colonialism) and the global history of Muslim women.
