Robert Wright teaches history at Trent University Durham/GTA.

His published œuvre includes several best-selling books, many articles and op-eds, and a writing credit on the acclaimed film Our Man in Tehran.

Wright's activities as a public intellectual are dedicated to the proposition that informed debate, rational discourse and citizen engagement are possible even in an era of polarized politics, alarmist media narratives, and historical amnesia.
