Hamid Rezaeiyazdi



Field of Interest:

Hamid Rezaeiyazdi

Hamid Rezaei Yazdi received his PhD from the Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations at the University of Toronto. Informed by postcolonial thought, his research challenges the binaristic paradigms that view non-Western modernity as the account of the conflict between the modern and the traditional and instead posits that Iranian modernities involved a dialogical synthesis of the novel and the traditional. Some of his publications include an article titled “The Dialogical Tradition of Iranian Modernity: Monāzereh, Simultaneity, and the Making of Modern Iran” (Iranian Studies, 2016); an edited volume (co-edited with Arshavez Mozaffari) titled Persian Literature and Modernity: Production and Reception (Routledge, 2019); a monograph translated into Persian titled Mudirnītah-i Guft u Gū‘ī: Jamālzādah va Afsānah-i Pedar-i Dāstān Nivīsī (Tarh-i Naw, 2021), and a translation of Ahmad Kasravi’s Ā‘īn from Persian into English titled Ethos: A Critique of Eurocentric Modernity (I.B.Tauris, 2023). He teaches at the Department of Liberal Studies at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber.
