Leonardo Ariel Carrió Cataldi has received his PhD degree in History from the European Doctoral Programme Europe and the invention of Modernity (EHESS, Paris- SUM/SNS, Pisa) in October 2015.
During 2016-2017, he has been postdoctoral fellow at the Centre Alexandre Koyré (Labex Hastec), in Paris. His main field is history of technology, science and knowledge in early modern empires, with a special interest in the Iberian monarchies.
His Max Weber project, entitled Translating time, constructing the world: from Mexico to the Eastern Mediterranean, expands his interest in early modern science and practical knowledge by broadening the geographical scope. Focusing on the British and the Iberian empires, the project addresses the production and circulation of practical knowledge and measuring instruments through imperial and religious frontiers during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. More precisely, he will work on the question of synchronization of time looking at the circulation of calendars.
He has taught undergraduate courses on history of science at ParisTech and master level at the EHESS, in Paris.
