Uzma Z. Rizvi, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Urban Studies at Pratt Institute of Art and Design, Brooklyn, where she teaches anthropology, ancient urbanism, critical heritage studies, memory and war/trauma studies, and the postcolonial critique.

An avid collector of experiences and thoughts, Rizvi travels extensively and utilizes those experiences to inform her research about past societies.
