About Me

My name is Keanu Heydari. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I’m currently in a Doctoral program in History at the Rackham Graduate School, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I research nineteenth- and twentieth-century French cultural and intellectual history and its global contexts. My recent work examines questions about the institutionalization and instrumentalization of laïcité in the late nineteenth century.
