The British–Yemeni Society invites you to a talk by last year's BYS Academic Grant recipient, Joshua Rogers, on Wednesday 7 December 2016, at 19:00. Joshua will talk about "Yemen's Other Civil War: Tribes, Technocrats, and Revolutionaries, 1962–70". The lecture will take place in Room B102, First Floor, Brunei Gallery Building, SOAS University of London (Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG). The Brunei Gallery is located opposite the main entrance to SOAS between Malet Street and Thornhaugh Street.

Joshua Rogers is PhD student at the Department for Development Studies, SOAS. He focuses on dynamics of state formation and transformation during the civil war in North Yemen from 1962-1970 and is supported by the Economics and Social Research Council. He has a particular interest in Yemen, conflict studies and ethnographic and political economy approaches to the state "from below". Before starting his PhD, Joshua worked on security sector reform and youth participation in Yemen for Saferworld, for the EU Delegation to Yemen, and for the OECD, and published a range of reports and briefings on developments in Yemen, Egypt and Libya.
