Marie Favereau

Research Associate - Lecturer
Marie Favereau obtained her Ph.D. in History from the University of La Sorbonne-Paris IV and the Università degli Studi di San Marino. She was a member of the French Institute of Oriental Archaeology (Cairo, 2005-2009) and a Fulbright visiting member of the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, 2009-2010). In 2011-2014 she held a post-doctoral position at Leiden University. She is currently research associate at the University of Oxford and member of the major research project: Nomadic Empires: A World-Historical Perspective (2014-19).

Marie Favereau’s research investigates the connections between Europe, the Middle East and Asia from the 13th to the 16th centuries. She specializes in the history of the ‘Golden Horde’ – the western part of the Mongol Empire which stretched from the Ural Mountains to the Black Sea. Her last publications reflect her interest in alternative forms of historical writing and in social and political implications of historical discourses.
