Timothy Snyder is Bird White Housum Professor of History at Yale University and IWM Permanent Fellow. He received his doctorate from the University of Oxford in 1997, where he was a British Marshall Scholar at Balliol College. He has held fellowships in Paris, Warsaw and Vienna, and an Academy Scholarship at Harvard. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in modern East European political history at Yale University.

Among his publications are five award-winning books, all of which have been translated.  Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin, a history of Nazi and Soviet mass killing on the lands between Berlin and Moscow, received a number of honors, including the Leipzig Prize for European Understanding and the Ralph Waldo Emerson Award in the Humanities. It was named a book of the year by some dozen publications, has been translated into more than twenty languages, and was a bestseller in four countries. Most recently, Snyder helped Tony Judt, who was also a Non-Resident Permanent Fellow at the IWM, to compose a thematic intellectual history, entitled Thinking the Twentieth Century. Additionally, he writes for American and European journals and newspapers.
