Bio: Maria Holt is a Senior Lecturer in the Democracy and Islam Programme, which is part of the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Westminster. Since completing her PhD in 2004 (on the effects of violent conflict on Shi'i and Palestinian women in Lebanon), she has been working on two research projects, the first focusing on Palestinian refugee women in Lebanon in terms of memory, identity and change, and the other on the impact of Islamic resistance movements on women in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. Her other research interests include the Arab-Israeli conflict, Muslim communities in the UK, political Islamist movements in the Middle East, and the final years of the British colonial period in southern Yemen. Besides her academic research, Dr Holt worked for many years as a political lobbyist on Middle East issues.
