- deRaismes Combes is currently completing her doctoral degree at the School of International Service at American University. She looks at the security implications of 9/11 on contemporary American identity, with a focus on covert drone strikes and air travel. deRaismes received her AB in French and War & Peace Studies at Dartmouth College (Magna cum Laude) and later completed a dual Masters program in Paris on International Relations and the Sociology of Conflict (with distinction). She has lived in Europe, the Middle East, and the U.S., which has helped foster a strong interest in power, security, and identity; the effects of words and images; and why/how the world gets constructed in specific ways. Her scholarship has included work on the Arab/Israeli conflict, the MENA region, the Islamic world, ethnic and civil wars, as well as the more broadly theoretical underpinnings of international relations.
