In this talk, Prof. Nabil Al-Tikriti will describe his year serving as a Fulbright Scholar in Baku, Azerbaijan. In the course of that year he compared his experiences teaching research methodology to undergraduates with Azerbaijani colleagues, conducted historical research in manuscript collections and university libraries, and assisted national counterparts in designing a proposed reform of Baku State University's American Studies curriculum. In the course of his immersion, Prof. Al-Tikriti gained numerous insights into post-Soviet legacies in Higher Education, as well as in alternative models of university instruction.
Nabil Al-Tikriti is Associate Professor of Middle East History at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. He has served as a member of the editorial board of Middle East Report since 2017, and prior to that was a member of the MSF/Doctors Without Borders USA Board of Directors from 2011 to 2017. He has served as a consultant, election monitor, and relief worker at a number of field locations in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
