Commentary on the Politics, History and Culture of the Middle East and Central Asia, by Brian Ulrich

After six years, my template was really creaking, so I've adopted a new look. This was just brought in from the set blogger templates and updated with my particular content. This summer I may get exceptionally wild and migrate to a new URL.
I am an Associate Professor in History at Shippensburg University, where I teach courses in Middle Eastern and world history. My two major research areas are the Middle East from the 7th through 10th centuries and the Persian Gulf from ancient times to the present. Nothing on this site represents an official position of Shippensburg University.
