Philip James Proudfoot

Visiting Research Fellow

Philip is an anthropologist of the Levant region. In late 2016 he joined the Council for British Research in the Levant’s [CBRL] British Institute in Amman shortly after having completed his PhD at LSE. As well as a visiting fellow at Lund, Philip is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Bath.  

Philip’s work is based on long-term fieldwork that he carried out amongst a network of Syrian labourers in Beirut. From a bottom-up perspective, Philip describes the personal and political transformations of men whose voices are frequently silenced in the face of today’s brutal proxy war.
