Jared Warren is a historian of modern Eastern Europe trained at New York University. His dissertation explores how Poland’s historically multi-religious population (including Roman and Greek Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Protestants, Muslims, and Jews) shaped nineteenth-century European debates about Polish independence. His broader interests include the history of nationalism, intellectual and cultural history, religious pluralism, Poland, France, Eastern Europe, the history of Orientalism, art history, and Jewish studies. He has conducted research in Poland, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom, supported by fellowships from the US Department of Education (Fulbright-Hays), the Leibniz Institute for European History, the École Normale Supérieure, the Association of Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies, and the Remarque Institute NYU. Prior to NYU, he studied history, French literature, and East European studies at Calvin University and the University of Kansas.
As a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute, Jared plans to revise his dissertation manuscript and work on an article about the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth-century Polish geopolitical imagination.
During his time as a graduate student, Jared taught Atlantic, European, and global history at New York University, the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, and the University of Warsaw as a teaching assistant and instructor of record for introductory and upper-level undergraduate seminars.
