Assistant Professor of Politics
D - 6 East 16th Street
Quentin Bruneau is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at the New School for Social Research and Eugene Lang College.
His research focuses on two broad areas. The first is international political economy, and particularly the historical development of international finance from the nineteenth century to the present day. His second area of interest is the history and theory of international relations.
His first book, States and the Masters of Capital: Sovereign Lending, Old and New (Columbia University Press, 2022), explores the transformation of sovereign lending from the early nineteenth century to the present day.
Before coming to New York, he obtained a D.Phil. in International Relations from the University of Oxford (2016), as well as an M.Phil. (2012) from the same institution, and a B.Sc. in Political Science from the Université de Montréal (2010).
