Jérémie Barthas

Researcher

National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France

After graduating in Philosophy, and in History, Barthas was appointed a Fellow of the European University Institute (Florence), where he took his PhD in May 2006. Since then, he has taken up numerous fellowships in Europe, in America and in Africa. Prior to arriving at Queen Mary, Barthas was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

Barthas's experience in academic research comprises studies of political and financial history as well as questions of intellectual history and political theory. This combination originates in his research on Machiavelli and the relation of his work to the financial crisis in Florence during the Republic of the Great Council (1494-1512).

Les travaux de Jérémie Barthas comprennent des études d'histoire politique, institutionnelle et financière ainsi que des études d'histoire intellectuelle et de théorie politique. Cette combinaison a pour origine un travail sur la pensée politique de Machiavel et la crise financière à Florence à l'époque de la république du Grand Conseil (1494-1512). Son projet de recherche principal porte actuellement sur la pensée financière florentine à l'époque de la haute Renaissance (1470-1540), et se base sur une approche de l'histoire intellectuelle qui associe l'histoire des systèmes d'administration et l'histoire sociale des idées politiques.
