Dr Chiara d’Agostini

Chiara D’Agostini studied Classics at the University of Milan. She has just finished and successfully defended her PhD at the University of Southern Denmark and its Centre for Medieval Literature. Her doctoral dissertation, titled Mapping Empires: Re-appropriations of Ptolemy’s Geography from the 12th to the 15th Centuries, explored the medieval reception of geography, considering text and maps from a new angle and focusing on its relevance to the construction of a quintessentially Byzantine geographical imagination.
