Lovro Kunčević

Lovro Kunčević (1979, Zagreb) received his PhD in Medieval Studies at the Central European University (Budapest) in 2012, with a dissertation entitled “The discourses on collective identity in Ragusa (ca. 1350-1600)”. He has published with various publishers (HAZU, Brill, CUP) on topics such as republican ideology, diplomatic rhetoric, image of the other, and political institutions of pre-modern Ragusa. He has taught courses on medieval and early modern history at the University of Zagreb and the University of Dubrovnik. He held scholarships at the University College London (UCL), Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia and Geisteswissenschaftliche Zentrum Geschichte und Kultur Ostmitteleuropas (GWZO) in Leipzig. His main interest is the comparative history of medieval and early modern republics, especially their political cultures and ideologies, reasons for their (in)stability, and modalities of decision-making. He is one of the coordinators of the project “Cultures of Voting in Pre-Modern Europe”, funded by the British Academy/ Leverhulme Trust. He has received the  award “Mirjana Gross” for the best book in historical science in 2015 for the monography Mit o Dubrovniku (the award is given by the Croatian National Committee for Historical Sciences and The Society for Croatian History).
