New Visitor at iCourts - Marco Duranti

29 November - 2 December 2016

Marco Duranti is Lecturer in Modern European and International History at the University of Sydney, where he directs the Nation Empire Globe Research Cluster. His scholarship approaches twentieth-century Western European history from an imperial, transatlantic, and transnational perspective. He received his B.A. in history from Harvard University in 2002 and his Ph.D. in history from Yale University in 2009. He has been a Fulbright Scholar at the European University Institute, a Fox Fellow at the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Max Planck Research Group on History and Memory at the University of Konstanz. He has published a number of articles and book chapters on the history of human rights and the European project, as well as the history of internationalism, international law and international organizations more broadly. His forthcoming monograph, The Conservative Human Rights Revolution: European Identity, Transnational Politics, and the Origins of the European Convention is due to be published with Oxford University Press in January 2017. The book explores the cultural, intellectual, and political foundations of the European human rights system, focusing on the role of British and French conservatives in launching the European project.
