The Center for Presidential History is pleased to welcome two new postdoctoral fellows to SMU for the 2018-2019 academic year: Dr. Gregory Brew and Dr. Lizzie Ingleson.

Gregory Brew completed his PhD in U.S. International History at Georgetown University in Spring 2018. Greg’s book project is Mandarins, Paladins, and Pahlavis: The International Energy System, the United States and the Dual Integration of Oil in Iran, 1925-1964. The manuscript explores the relationship between oil and development in Iran during the mid-20th century, and the origins of the U.S.-Iranian relationship. Brew’s work has appeared in Iranian Studies, International History Review and Mediterranean Quarterly and has received support from the Franklin Roosevelt Presidential Library and the Rockefeller Archive Center.

Lizzie Ingleson arrives at the CPH after completing her PhD in History from the University of Sydney in 2017. Her current book project, Making Made in China: Race, Politics, and Labor in Sino-American Trade, 1972-1978, examines the relationships between trade, diplomacy, and labor in the origins of the U.S.-China trade relationship. Ingelson’s work has been supported by the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, SHAFR, and the Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to commencing her PhD, she worked at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in Canberra.

Brew and Ingleson join current CPH postdoctoral fellows Lindsay Chervinsky (PhD, UC-Davis) and Blake Earle (PhD, Rice).
