Bio/Description

Nick Barone is a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the History Department and a fellow in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities. He specializes in nineteenth-century British and European intellectual, cultural, and social history.

His dissertation focuses on the shifting semiotic role of pessimism, decline, and apathy in British political-intellectual life, from the French Revolution to the exile of a 31-year-old Karl Marx to London in 1849. He has secondary interests in the comparative history of European statecraft, aesthetics, post-Kantian philosophy, and transnational labor history. Nick is also currently a contributing editor at the Journal of the History of Ideas blog.

Nick graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Vassar College in 2019 with a B.A. in English and History. He has also completed coursework in modern European history at the University of Oxford and in literary studies, legal history, and gender and sexuality studies at Brown University.
