Maysan Haydar is the 2022-2024 Pforzheimer Foundation Fellow working on policy and the state of public humanities within the Humanities, Arts, and Culture program area. Her doctoral research chronicled the unprecedented, selective migration of STEM labor from the developing world to the United States and traced the processes of community- and organization-building by those immigrants. She has larger interests in histories of conflict, labor, and citizenship.
Dr. Haydar’s work has been published by HarperCollins, Seal Press, Rowman and Littlefield, and St. Martin’s Press, among others. She is also assistant professor of history at Case Western Reserve University.
