Christa Case Bryant is Middle East editor at The Christian Science Monitor, where she has guided the paper’s coverage of events from Morocco to Iran for the past three years—including Iran’s 2009 protests and the Arab spring. She also oversees The Monitor’s international coverage in the weekly magazine. Prior to holding those posts, Bryant worked on The Monitor’s online team and also served as Europe editor, and she has reported from Europe and the Middle East for The Monitor. In addition to her long-time interest in international affairs, Bryant’s background as a musician, equestrian, and international ski racer have led to a widely varied body of work since arriving at The Monitor in 2004. It includes in-depth projects such as a 2011 cover story on the rising global middle class and a 2008 series on Russia’s Putin Generation, as well as features on everything from acclaimed Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes to a nascent Palestinian civic education movement in the West Bank. A particularly special assignment was covering the 2010 Vancouver Olympics for The Monitor, since Bryant herself was once an Olympic hopeful in cross-country skiing. She graduated from Principia College in Elsah, Ill., with a B.A. in global perspectives and a minor in religion.
