Welcome everyone. On this site you can learn about me and my academic work, as well as other research and translation projects I've been involved in. As I write my dissertation, I'll also be posting bits and pieces from the cutting room floor in the fieldwork archives. Finally, I'll be sharing some of the photographs I've taken over the past decade in the Middle East and the United States. I have an on-again off-again relationship with my camera, so I'll post when the spirit moves me. If you want to get in touch, I can be reached at: pkohbr1 (at) jhu (dot) edu.
