Carlo Ginzburg

Garlo Ginzburg is the professor emeritus in History of European Cultures in Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy. He has also taught at the UCLA as the Franklin D. Murphy professor of Italian Renaissance Studies. His research interests include Italian renaissance and early modern European history.

Carlo Ginzburg is a distinguished historian with a remarkable career. He is well-known for his microhistorical approach. His method follows clues from seemingly small and inconsequential cases and details, such as the recording of what one miller once has said upon questioning, in order to illuminate the bigger picture, the richness and complexity of historical phenomena.

Ginzburg’s publications include volumes such as The Cheese and the Worms: The Cosmos of a Sixteenth Century Miller; Ecstasies: Deciphering the Witches Sabbath; Clues, Myths and the Historical Method; The Judge and the Historian: Marginal Notes on a late-twentieth century miscarriage of justice.
