Mansour Bonakdarian "teaches British, imperial, and comparative history. He has published extensively on topics ranging from Iranian women and British suffragists in the early twentieth century to the ideological cross-currents and interactions between Iranian and Indian nationalists from 1905 to 1921, and Iran and the Ottoman Empire at the First Universal Races Congress (London, 1911). He is the author of Britain and the Iranian Constitutional Revolution of 1906-1911: Foreign Policy, Imperialism, and Dissent (Syracuse University Press, June 2006). His publications have appeared in various journals, including Iranian Studies, British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies, International Journal of Middle East Studies, Radical History Review, Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East, as well as in the Encyclopaedia Iranica and as book chapters. His current projects include a collected volume of essays (with Ian Christopher Fletcher) on the First Universal Races Congress and a monograph on the contentious confluences of nationalism, internationalism, and transnationalism in India, Iran, and Ireland, 1905-1921. His other ongoing research interests include “empathy and cross-cultural/cross-racial epistemology in the ‘Age of Empire’” and “global networks of ‘anti-imperialist’ nationalist solidarities and resistance to European imperialism in the early twentieth century.”" [1]
