Professor Lawrence is a scholar of the Middle East, with particular expertise in North African politics.  She studies conflict and collective action, investigating how people come to mobilize in favor of ideologies such as ethnicity, nationalism, religion, and democracy. We talk with Professor Lawrence about her new manuscript, Imperial Rule and the Politics of Nationalism. It provides an account of how and why nationalist mobilization against colonial rule erupted in the 20th century French Empire.
