Camille Cole is a PhD candidate at Yale University, focusing on the history of technology and property in late nineteenth-century Iraq and Iran. Her dissertation, “Empire on Edge: Land, Law, and Capital in Gilded Age Basra, 1884-1914,” revolves around the stories of powerful capitalists and political leaders in the region, whose mediation of the three empires active there shaped the emergence of modernity in Iraq and Iran.

This event is part of the Yale Environmental History Fall 2019 Workshop Series.
