A study of humanist sociability and friendship in 1460s-70s Rome

I am a social and cultural historian, currently a PhD candidate, concerned with what is easily phrased as the sociology and anthropology of intellectuals and their communities. I study the history of humanists in mid-to-late fifteenth-century Rome through the stories of their friendships, rivalries, enemies, collegialities, and employment. My research focuses on how wider behaviour, rituals, and actions affected the development of humanism and society in Rome. Working with the methods of social, cultural, and intellectual history, I tie together the social and intellectual worlds of Renaissance Rome, and more generally, Renaissance Italy. Future hopeful projects will continue to study intellectuals and academics moving to and living in early modern Rome, and the positions, jobs, and offices they occupied and negotiated with. I am also fascinated by the historiography of the Italian Renaissance, and how that concept developed. Other interests include historical and contemporary academics practice the crafts of their discipline, and how these disciplines developed over time and in particular social and cultural environments.
