Golbarg Rekabtalaei, Ph.D

Assistant Professor
Department of History

I am a cultural and social historian of modern Iran and modern Middle East at large. My research focuses on the relationships between culture and cultural production, modernity, cosmopolitanism, urbanisation, nationalism, and revolutions. More specifically, I am interested in the role of cinema, in concrete form and onscreen, in facilitating cosmopolitan imaginations and hybrid subjectivities in early twentieth century Tehran. I was a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at North Carolina State University from 2015 to 2017. At Seton Hall, I teach courses on the history of the Middle East, World History I, and World History II.
