Sheragim Jenabzadeh earned his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto and will develop his dissertation, “City of Aspirations: Iranian Student Activism in Interwar Berlin” into a book manuscript. The project titled, “Youthful Revolutionaries: The Transnational Networks of Iranian Students in Interwar Germany,” contextualizes early 20th-century Iranian intellectual history within a global framework. Sheragim takes a historical, anthropological approach and uses archival sources to highlight lived history of a diasporic community of Iranian revolutionaries. Sheragim’s work with German archives sets his research apart from all other works in the field on the same topic. He brings a distinct approach to the global context of Iranian history in the 20th century.
