Samira Chatila

Samira Chatila is a doctoral student in the Comparative and International Development Education program at the University of Minnesota. In my home country Lebanon, I’ve pursued my M.A. in Education from the Lebanese American University and my B.S. in Medical Laboratory Sciences from the American University of Beirut. I am also a proud recipient of the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change fellowship and the Provost’s Fund fellowship for my doctoral studies at UMN. I’ve been actively researching and managing studies related to the education of vulnerable children in the Middle East and the Arab region since 2016. My research interests include (and are certainly not limited to): education policy; language and identity; displacement (including internal displacement and forced migration); and critical pedagogy. I am always excited and ready to learn and grow.
