Dina Badie joined Centre’s faculty in 2012 as assistant professor of politics and international studies, and she was promoted to associate professor in 2018. Named a Centre Scholar in 2015 — a two-year appointment recognizing teaching excellence, scholarship, and contributions to the Centre Community — Badie also received a Kirk Award for excellence in teaching in 2018.
Her teaching interests include international relations theory, foreign policy, security studies, and Middle East politics. She has taught a wide range of courses in these areas and directed a study abroad course in Egypt in 2016.
Badie is the author of After Saddam: American Foreign Policy and the Destruction of Secularism in the Middle East (Rowman and Littlefield, 2017), and she has published articles in Foreign Policy Analysis, International Studies Perspective, and Strategic Studies Quarterly. Her current research is focused on two tracks. The first centers on structural violence and political marginalization in the context of Palestine; the second investigates the intersection of necropolitics in the arena of American foreign policy in the Middle East.
Badie serves as co-chair of Centre’s Underrepresented Faculty Council and Fulbright co-advisor for the college. She is also the faculty mentor for The Cento, Centre’s student newspaper, and leads a Women’s Forum as a co-curricular professional development program for majors.
She received her B.A, M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut.
