Roy Bar Sadeh is a global historian of South Asia and the Middle East. Exploring the thought and activism of Muslim thinkers across three empires— British, Ottoman, and Russian—and their successors, his research seeks to recover the important, albeit under-explored, contributions of Muslim thinkers to both regional and global debates about sovereignty and religious difference. Bar Sadeh received his Ph.D. in history from Columbia University and he is currently working on his first monograph, Recasting Minority: Islamic Modernists and Global Thought, 1858-1947. His previous peer-reviewed research has been published in Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History. During the 2022-23 academic year Roy will be a postdoctoral fellow in the Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization at Yale University Law School.
