2nd-year Ph.D. student
Jones Hall

Adam Anabosi is a Ph.D. student in the Near Eastern Studies Department at Princeton University. He is interested in the modern Middle East's social history, particularly issues concerned with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the forced migration and mobility of Palestinian refugees, and their relations with their relatives, Palestinians with Israeli citizenship.

Anabosi graduated with a B.A from the Hebrew University in Arabic Language and Literature and Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and an M.A degree from the Hebrew University, where he wrote his M.A thesis, “The Health Services for Palestinians under the Israeli Military Rule in the Triangle area (1949-1967).” His thesis examines the colonial aspects of these Health Services, besides the emergence of new forms of relations between Palestinian women and Mizrahi Jewish nurses.

At the Hebrew University, he was a member of a research group led by Prof. Liat Kozma that studied the regional history of medicine in the Middle East.

Anabosi is broadly interested, as well, in oral history doctrine and its intersectionalities with the Archive, Levantine and mainly Palestinian traditional songs, and how historical occasions have influenced their documentary dimension.

Anabosi also taught Arabic for seven years to high school and university students and worked as an archivist for one year. He is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew.
