Stuart M. McManus is an historian and classicist working on slavery, law and empire in world history from a global and multi-ethnic perspective. He received his Ph.D. in history (secondary field in classical philology) from Harvard University. Prior to coming to CUHK, he taught Mexican and ancient Mediterranean history for two years at the University of Chicago, where he was the inaugural postdoctoral fellow at the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge. He is currently completing a book on the global history of renaissance humanism based on primary research in 13 countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia, and is beginning work on a second book on the global history of freedom and slavery with a focus on the reception of Roman law and its interactions with Chinese, South Asian, African and indigenous American conceptions. During the fall of 2019, Professor McManus was on leave at Princeton University’s Davis Center for Historical Studies and is a scholar-in-residence at the Newberry Library, Chicago.
In addition, he is the author of over 20 articles, book chapters and reviews that have appeared in Hispanic American Historical Review, Latino Studies, Catholic Historical Review, Colonial Latin American Review, Harvard Studies in Classical Philology, Renaissance Quarterly, Zeitschrift der Savigny-Stiftung für Rechtsgeschichte and other similar venues. He also has interests in the history of African American classical scholarship and has a budding interest in Chinese humanities.
His second book project on the global history of freedom and slavery has recently been awarded a Humboldt Yale History Network Travel Grant and a 2-year Early Career Scheme Grant from the Research Grants Council (HK$584,080). He has also received fellowships from the Social Sciences Research Council (USA), the Mellon Foundation-CLIR (USA), the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK), the Huntington Library (USA), the Lilly Library (USA), the John Carter Brown Library (USA) and the Warburg Institute (USA).
