Nicole Sunday Grove

Assistant Professor of International Relations
University of Hawaii at Manoa

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa, with affiliations in the Hawaiʻi Research Center for Futures Studies and the International Cultural Studies Program.  My teaching and research interests are located at the intersection of international relations and transnational Middle East politics, focusing on issues of security, gender, mobility, technology, visuality, and popular culture.  Most recently, I received the 2016-2017 Fulbright Scholar Award in the Middle East and North Africa Regional Research Program.  My work has been published in Security Dialogue, Globalizations, and the Journal of Critical Globalization Studies. I am also an Associate Editor for the journal International Political Sociology.
