Daniel Jamison

Postdoctoral Fellow Downtown Toronto (St. George)

Office Location:  Sidney Smith 3051


In 2017, Daniel Jamison received his doctorate in Medieval Studies from the University of Toronto for a thesis on customs taxation and fiscal politics in late medieval Lucca. He joins the Department of History to conduct postdoctoral research at DECIMA and Hidden Florence under Professor Nicholas Terpstra and Dr. Fabrizio Nevola (Exeter). His research will continue to examine the dialogue between the premodern Italian state and the object of its control: a ‘subject’ body rendered elusive by spatial ambiguities and the hard limits of documentary technologies.
