Chris Rominger

Assistant Director for Curricular and Pedagogical Innovation

Dr. Chris Rominger is an educator and historian born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. At BU’s Kilachand Honors College, he teaches and supports a variety of projects and programs, from curriculum development and coordinating Keystone Projects to supporting teams of faculty and postdoctoral fellows in their interdisciplinary work. Rominger comes to Kilachand from the University of North Florida, where he was Assistant Professor of History and taught courses on modern Middle Eastern, North African, and Mediterranean histories.

Rominger is currently working on a book exploring transnational political movements in North Africa surrounding the imperial wars of the early twentieth century, drawing on sources in Arabic, French, and Italian. In particular, his research follows the trajectory of the enigmatic Tunisian photographer and filmmaker Albert Samama-Chikly through the upheavals of the French colonization of Tunisia (from 1881), the Italo-Ottoman War (1911-1912), the First World War (1914-18), and its aftermath.
