Rana Baker



Rana Baker is a Lecturer in the History of the Middle East. Her research brings together history, critical political economy and STS to study transformations in land, debt, money and development in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Egypt. Using the Ottoman-Egyptian archives as sites of theoretical production, her current book project examines how Ottoman-Egyptian categories and forms of organising of spiritual and material prosperity were transformed through colonial practices and the introduction of financialised relations to land and credit.
