Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Gregory Brew, Postdoctoral Fellow, Jackson School of Global Affairs, Yale University, presenting a virtual seminar titled Petroleum and Progress in Iran: Oil, Development, and the Cold War on Thursday, January 26, 2023.
Dr. Gregory Brew will discuss his new book, which explores the oil history of Iran, the role of oil in U.S.-Iranian relations during the Cold War, and the connection between the global development movement and the creation of the Iranian “petro-state.” Through an exploration of these themes, Brew will draw connections between the energy crises of the Cold War era and the current problems facing the global energy economy.

He has published two books and his work has appeared in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, the Washington Post, The National Interest, Time Magazine, and The Conversation. Find him on Twitter: @gbrew24.
