Michael Peddycoart

Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and Student Coordinator of Global South Workshop

My research examines the intellectual and social histories of Palestinian leftist groups in the second half of the twentieth century. I am particularly interested in how these groups participated in and grappled with the period’s evolving discourses on Marxism-Leninism, class, gender, youth mobilization, cultural production, and political spectacle. My research has been supported by the Nicholson Center for British Studies, the American Councils for International Education, and the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Program. I hold a master’s degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree with honors in International Relations from Stanford University.
