Research Interests

Anastasia Stouraiti is a cultural historian of the early modern period, specialising in the history of the Republic of Venice and its empire. Her work examines the impact of the colonies on Venetian metropolitan culture and the relationships between the Venetian and the Ottoman empires. Her research and teaching interests include the history of the book and reading, early modern visual culture and the history of the Mediterranean. She is currently completing a book provisionally titled War, Communication and the Culture of Politics in Seventeenth-Century Venice , in which she integrates war into the history of culture through the study of the information media that affected the formation of an early modern Venetian public and shaped perceptions of the Ottoman empire.
