Assistant Professor Nicole Grove

Background and Research Interests

I received my B.A. (2008) in Politics from New York University and my Ph.D. (2015) in Political Science from Johns Hopkins University. I joined the faculty in the Department of Political Science at UH as an Assistant Professor in 2015, where I am also Affiliate Faculty in the Hawaiʻi Research Center for Futures Studies and the International Cultural Studies Program. My teaching and research interests are located at the intersection of international relations and transnational Middle East politics, focusing on issues of security, gender, technology, visuality, and popular culture. Most recently, I received the 2016-2017 Fulbright Scholar Award in the Middle East and North Africa Regional Research Program. My work has been published in the European Journal of International Relations, Security Dialogue, Globalizations, and the Journal of Critical Globalization Studies. I am also an Associate Editor for the journal International Political Sociology, and am on the International Advisory Board of the British Journal of Politics and International Relations.
