Professor Antony Molho, Emeritus Professor at EUI’s Department of History and Civilization, has been awarded two honorary doctorates, from the University of Crete and the National and Capodistrian University of Athens. He received the degrees on the 17th of October in Crete and the 31st of October in Athens.
Professor Molho has worked at the EUI since 2001. Prior to his emeritus position, he was the Director of The Academy of European History, Mediterranean Studies Chair at the Schuman Centre, and Head of the Department of History and Civilization.
Professor Molho received his school education in his native Greece, and was also a Visiting Professor at the University of Athens. Before joining the EUI, he held positions at Brown University in the USA, and the universities of Vermont, Michigan State, and Florence. He also served at the Director of Studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
The professor is currently working on a book on the personal and scholarly experiences of a group of historians who were classified as Jewish by the Nazi and Fascist regimes and fled to the USA in the 1920s and 30s. He has published extensively on the history of Florence, with major works including ‘Florentine Public Finances in the Early Renaissance’ (1971), published by Harvard University Press, and ‘Marriage Alliance in Late Medieval and Early Modern Florence’ (1994), also published by Harvard University Press.
The EUI extends its warmest congratulations to Professor Mohlo for these new accolades
