Tawfiq Alhamedi | Research Program

My research explores competing articulations of national identity, belonging, and community along the Swahili coast. Engaging both Hadhrami diasporic communities as well as Zanzibari nationalists at the margins of Tanzanian politics, my work aims to examine how these minoritized groups contest and negotiate history, heritage, and memory in light of the drastic geopolitical and neoliberal shifts in contemporary East Africa.
