Jack H. Guenther is a Henry Chauncey ’57 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy. He specializes in German history and the history of globalization and international order. His book project, Shaping an Interconnected World: Hamburg, Germany, and the Transformation of Interdependence, 1880-1974, charts how Germans and four editions of the German state dealt — economically, intellectually, politically, violently — with global interdependence. It argues that Hamburg-based experiments in shaping an interconnected world proved foundational for both the Federal Republic of Germany and the architecture of postwar global economic governance. Research from the project has appeared in Central European History and is forthcoming in German History.
Jack received his PhD from Princeton in 2024 and his BA from Wesleyan University in 2018. He spent two years as a (mediocre) college soccer player and several years as president of Princeton’s graduate student and faculty soccer club, Grad FC.
