Research Summary

Dr. Anziska’s research is focused on the international history of the Middle East in the 20th century, particularly Israel/Palestine, Lebanon, and US relations with the wider region. His first book, Preventing Palestine, examined the emergence of the 1978 Camp David Accords and the consequences of international diplomacy in circumscribing Palestinian self-determination. Dr. Anziska is also interested in archival practices and visual culture of the Middle East, as well as the legacy of Arab-Jewish encounters in Europe and the Levant. Current projects include an international history of the 1982 Lebanon War (supported by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust), which explores the possibility and limitations of historical research across national borders given the afterlife of political violence.
