Faiz Ahmed is Assistant Professor of History at Brown University and a specialist in the legal history of the modern Middle East and greater Islamic world. Dr. Ahmed's primary research explores the intersection of religious and educational networks, constitutional movements, and "rule of law" ideology in late Ottoman Turkey, Qajar Iran, and Afghanistan during the long nineteenth century. Trained as a lawyer and social historian, Ahmed's abiding interest has been exploring how the contestations and conciliations between scholar-jurists, administrators, and everyday "citizen-subjects" constitute the life of the law in an amorphous region recently come to be known as the Middle East. He is a recipient of fellowships from the Fulbright Program, Social Science Research Council, American Research Institute in Turkey, and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for his research in Turkey, Egypt, India, Britain, and Afghanistan.
