Rochelle Davis is an Associate Professor of Anthropology in the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, Walsh School of Foreign Service. Her main research is on forced migration, war, and conflict, particularly Palestinian, Syrian, and Iraqi refugees and internally displaced persons. Her first book, Palestinian Village Histories: Geographies of the Displaced, (Stanford University Press, 2012) addresses how Palestinian refugees today write histories of their villages that were destroyed in the 1948 war, and the stories and commemorations of village life that are circulated in the diaspora. She is currently writing a book on the role of culture in the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She holds a BA in Art History (University of California, Davis), an MA/PhD in Modern Arabic Literature, and a PhD in Anthropology (University of Michigan). She is a board member of the Palestine Poster Project Archive, a web-based archive of over 10,000 posters.
