Short Bio

Marco Demichelis has recently been Berenson Fellow (spring semester 2022/2023) at the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, with a project entitled: Paolo Giovio, Giovanni Botero, and Islamic Otherness at the End of the Italian Renaissance. He has previously been Marie Curie Research Fellow (IF 2016) and Senior Research Fellow in Islamic Studies and History of the Middle East in the Institute of Culture and Research at the University of Navarra (2019-2021). He conducted doctoral and post-doctoral research in Islamic Kalam (speculative Theology), and Muslim Eschatology while his MSCA project investigated the process of canonization of violence in Early Islam. His focus, predominantly centered on the Christian-Islamic dimension, allowed him to work on pre-modern era as more contemporary subjects. During his post-doctoral fellowship at the Catholic University of Milan (2013-2016), he was Visiting Research Fellow at the MacMillan enter of the University of Yale (2014).
