Office  Not Available

Lily Hindy focuses on the history of the modern Middle East, with a specific interest in identity, nationalism, and ethnic and religious minorities, particularly in Iraq and Syria. She is also interested in migration and diaspora. Lily was previously a senior foreign policy associate at The Century Foundation in New York, a progressive think tank, and before that she spent five years as deputy director of RISC, a nonprofit organization that trains freelance conflict journalists in first aid. Lily's hobbies include yoga, hiking and traveling. At UCLA she is really looking forward to being a student again, learning at least one new language, and working with an excellent faculty and group of students. Fun fact: Lily was born in Cairo where her father was working as a journalist.
