Sean L. Yom is Assistant Professor of Political Science (comparative politics).  His research broadly focuses on authoritarianism and development, and he is now finishing his first book on state-building and political order in the post-colonial Middle East.  His other current research interests concern the future of democratic reforms in the Arab world, patterns of transnational hierarchy between sovereign states, and contemporary methods of comparative-historical analysis.  At Temple, he teaches courses on Middle East politics, comparative political regimes, and democracy in the modern world.  He received his Ph.D. at Harvard (2009) and thereafter completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford.
