Dr Kira Allmann completed her DPhil in Oriental Studies (Islamic World) at the University of Oxford in 2016. Her research focuses on online/offline politics, space, and mobility in Egypt after the 2011 Egyptian revolution. Her thesis explored the political and spatial implications of technologically mediated mobility between virtual and physical dimensions in Egypt, examining how information and communications technologies enable new forms of resistance and also new regimes of disenfranchisement and exclusion. Kira is a Rhodes Scholar and holds an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Oxford and a BA in Government and Linguistics from The College of William and Mary. She is the media and communications officer for the Oxford Human Rights Hub and the Constructing Scientific Communities Project, and she is the creator and producer of several academic podcast and video series.
