Deputy Director, Center for Gender and Development Studies
Dr. Lynn Rose joined the faculty at AUIS in 2016 following twenty years as a teacher-scholar in the U.S. and Germany. She has won several teaching awards, including the CASE (Carnegie) Professor of the Year for Missouri, and has served as a Fulbright Scholar and a Mary Switzer Distinguished Fellow.
Dr. Rose teaches the history and humanities of the premodern world; her scholarship focuses on disability studies in the ancient Graeco-Roman world but sometimes considers the modern world and non-western societies, and almost always overlaps with gender studies.
Her current research looks at gender and institutionalized life in Kurdistan, in particular in prisons and mental institutions.
