Will Hanley

I am a legal and social historian of the Middle East. I am associate professor of history at Florida State University. I studied at the Universities of Saskatchewan, Toronto, and Oxford before taking my doctorate in history at Princeton.

My first book, Identifying with Nationality: Europeans, Ottomans, and Egyptians in Alexandria, was published by Columbia University Press in 2017.

Find the rest of my scholarship, including downloadable PDFs, in Zenodo’s repositories or via my ORCID profile.

I am currently working on a Cairo-centered history of international law between 1870 and 1930.

I am also engaged in a variety of digital projects, which I describe elsewhere on this website.

My research has been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Forum Transregionale Studien, the DAAD, and the Institute for Advanced Study.
