Kamala Imranli-Lowe is a historian of the Caucasus, her main interests being in the history of Armenians and Caucasian Albanians. She gained her PhD in Russian and East European Studies from the University of Birmingham, UK, with a thesis on the territorial conflicts between the first Armenian and Azerbaijani republics from 1918 to 1920/21. She is the author of three books, a chapter in an edited volume and articles, including six single-authored ones in peer-reviewed journals. Her current project as ONGC Visiting Fellow interrogates perceptions of the Albanian “homeland”, church and identity in the narratives of the late medieval to late modern periods, namely from the fourteenth to the early twentieth century. This includes chronicles, histories, colophons, memoirs and official documents, and assesses the dynamics of discourses on the researched questions across historical, generational and political contexts in the period under investigation. The findings of the research will be translated into a monograph, an article and presentations at academic events.
