Research Interests

Panagiotis comes from Athens. He was awarded a BA in History and Archaeology from the University of Athens (2011), followed by a M. Phil in Early Modern History from the same (2017). His doctoral research is a study of the socio-cultural history of the French Huguenot communities in Western Europe and the American colonies after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, focusing specifically on the connections amongst these communities and the role of print in the formation of an international Huguenot network.

His research interests are grounded in the history of identities and the transfer of political ideas and propaganda throughout Europe, in an era in which the development of the state had just begun.
