Eileen Ryan

  • Use of the Libyan Oral History Project (al-Riwayaat al-Safawiyya) - a seldom used source
  • Controversial in challenging narratives of resistance and collaboration in colonial Libya
  • Introduces an innovative reading of religious identity in Italian expansion overseas
  • Use of the mission archives of the Franciscan order is also unusual
