Sheyda F. A. Jahanbani (Ph.D., Brown University, 2009; M.A., Brown University, 2001; B.S.F.S., The Edmund G. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, 1999) is an historian of American foreign relations specializing in the post-1945 period. She is especially interested in the legacy of the liberal internationalist tradition in Cold War foreign policy. This includes the history of US relations with the "Third World," the history of development, economic globalization in the 20th century, and the emergence of distinctly "global" problems in the post-World War II period. Professor Jahanbani is currently completing a book manuscript that seeks to historicize the origins of a conception of global poverty in postwar social thought and politics: “'The Poverty of the World:’” Discovering the Poor at Home and Abroad, 1935-1973,” (forthcoming from Oxford University Press) .
