Vagelli
Matteo Vagelli's work lies at the intersection between historical epistemology, the historiography of science and the history of philosophy of science. His areas of specialization are contemporary philosophy, French epistemology, and 20th century history of philosophy of science.

He holds a BA and an MA in philosophy from the University of Pisa and has obtained a PhD in philosophy from the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and the School of Advanced Studies Fondazione San Carlo. He has done research at the University of Chicago, the Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, the Centre Marc Bloch in Berlin and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris. In 2015, he co-founded an international research network on historical epistemology (episthist.hypotheses.org). In 2017/2018 he held the Chair ‘French contemporary thought’ at the European University Viadrina (Frankfurt an der Oder).

He is currently a Marie Skłodowska Curie postdoctoral fellow at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and at Harvard University ("EPISTYLE", GA 101030646). His project aims to provide a comprehensive theoretical and historical discussion of the concept of ‘style’, in order to excavate the notion’s epistemological implications for current debates about scientific pluralism.
