Cyrus Schayegh (PhD, Columbia University, 2004) has been Professor of International History at the Geneva Graduate Institute (IHEID) since 2017. Before, he was Associate Professor at Princeton University and Assistant Professor at the American University of Beirut. His most recent books are the monograph The Middle East and the Making of the Modern World (Harvard UP, 2017) and the edited volume Globalizing the U.S. Presidency: Postcolonial Views of John F. Kennedy (Bloomsbury, 2020). He is currently working on three projects. One concerns transimperial history, and includes an introductory book to that field and two edited volumes resulting from a conference he organized at IHEID in spring 2022. Another project is a series of article-length case studies on modern global Middle Eastern history and a related collection of primary sources that will be published at the open-access Wilson Center Digital Archive. He is editing that collection. (A first collection―he built and translated himself.) Finally, a third project involves editing The Cambridge Companion to the Cold War in the Middle East and North Africa.
