Research interests

Engaged with a project that examines matters of method in the internationally acknowledged work of the esteemed 'Cambridge School' classics in the history of political thought and the history of ideas (John Pocock, Quentin Skinner and John Dunn), which I defended for the awarding of my doctorate in 2020. My broader academic and research interests fall into the domains of political thought and conceptual history, canonized political philosophy, methods and knowledge-based perspectives in the human sciences, and Hellenic studies (cultural, political and intellectual dimensions). The research networks and learned societies where I have been more active in the recent years consist in milieus broadly dedicated to intellectual history, cultural history and political science.

A selection of recent works: “Freedom and its diachrony”, Global Intellectual History (2021); Outline of the history of Greek language and of the contemporary linguistic landscape in Greece (2023); "A new Weber for the international academic audience", Global Intellectual History (2022); Cambridge Classics in the History of Ideas, University of Jyväskylä (2020); “Reinhart Koselleck’s work on the concept of crisis”, French Journal for Media Research (2016).
