Padraic Rohan


A former journalist in Turkey and the Middle East, Padraic is Humanities & Sciences Dean’s Fellow and Lecturer in the department. His work in Latin and Ottoman Turkish sources has been supported by a Fulbright fellowship, and his research and teaching fields range across European, Islamic, and world history, contributing to the history of empire and of capitalism. His current book project investigates the late medieval and early modern Mediterranean and Atlantic worlds, highlighting the transnational identities of the Genoese between the Ottoman and Iberian empires, and arguing that the Genoese maritime empire in the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea transformed into a financial empire based on the Iberian peninsula.
