Moad Musbahi

Anthropology Graduate Student

Moad works on ‘continuity’ and how it can be claimed and constituted across the region of North and Sub-Saharan Africa. Focussing on the performative moment of articulation and its acoustic dimension, he is interested in investigating the different methodologies employed to demand economic privilege and political participation contra the nation-state. Previously, his research involved working across media repositories, such as TikTok, that evidenced shifts in monetary policy and how they intersected with genealogical imaginaries and modern border regimes in the context of north-west Libya.

Before coming to Princeton, he worked as an external advisor for Bain & Co, a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art and as an independent artist and curator. He holds an MArch and MA from the Architectural Association and the Royal College of Art respectively.
