About Kate Pukhovaia
Kate Pukhovaia is a historian of the pre-modern Middle East specializing in the early modern (14th - 18th centuries) socio-political history of the Arab world. She is interested in the comparative study of pre-modern state institutions and political elites in the Middle East as well as the history of Arabia in its regional context.
Her research project, "Early Modern State Development in Yemen", questions how the state and political elites developed in Yemen in the 13th-17th centuries, and what role the first period of Ottoman rule (1538-1635) played in the transformation of regional political and social structures.
