Title of thesis: Charles de Bovelles and humanist philosophy in sixteenth-century France


Biography:

I graduated from the University of Gothenburg with a BA in Liberal Arts in 2014. Since then, I have pursued my interests in early modern intellectual history, first at the University of Lyon II and then at the Warburg Institute, where I earned my MA in 2016. Most recently, I have studied post-classical Latin in the Mellon post-bacc program at the University of California, Los Angeles. 

My doctoral research is concerned with the philosophical literature of early sixteenth-century France. I am particularly interested in experiments with genre - compendia, dictionaries, use of diagrams and images, letters - and how they reflect the interactions of professors at the Arts faculty with the printing industry and (indirectly) with a growing external readership for philosophy.
