The Institute is glad to welcome Jesús de Felipe-Redondo and Alexander Mirkovic to its community of scholars. Both will maintain offices in the EIHS suite in 1521 Haven Hall.
Jesús de Felipe-Redondo is a Fulbright postdoctoral researcher and visiting scholar at the University of Michigan. He earned his Ph.D. (with special mention of Doctor Europeus) at the University of La Laguna (Spain). His fourth book, Trabajadores. Lenguaje y experiencia en la formación del movimiento obrero español (Workers. Language and Experience in the Formation of the Spanish Labor Movement, 2012) received an award from the Spanish Contemporary History Association. His current project examines the relationships between several European labor movements and the creation of interventionist states in 1870-1920, emphasizing the development of identities and actions based on the idea of social right.
Dr. de Felipe-Redondo will be in residence at the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies until January 2014.
Alexander Mirkovic is currently an assistant professor at Northern Michigan University. Born and raised in Belgrade, former Yugoslavia, now Serbia, he earned his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in Nashville. His first book, Prelude to Constantine: Abgar Tradition in Early Christianity (2004), explored religious diversity in Late Ancient Syria. He is currently working on a project that explores how the Russian émigrés after the Bolshevik Revolution worked to shape the Russian and Orthodox past in order to answer the challenges of the Cold War.
Professor Mirkovic will be in residence at the Eisenberg Institute until May 2014.
