Marc Mierowsky completed a BA (Hons) at the University of Sydney and an MA in Applied Linguistics at the University of New England before going to Cambridge, where he graduated with a PhD in English Literature and Intellectual History in 2017. Since then he has held fellowships at Cambridge, the Folger Shakespeare Library and The University of Melbourne, where he is currently a Mckenzie Postdoctoral Fellow.
He is one of the editors of The Letters of Daniel Defoe (along with Nicholas Seager and Andreas Mueller), for Cambridge University Press, and co-editor (with Nicholas Seager) of Defoe's Roxana, which is forthcoming with Oxford World's Classics.He is currently working on two discrete but interlocking projects: a cultural history of Naturalization from the Anglo-Scottish Union to the acts of denization in the colonies of NSW and Victoria, and a narrative history of the group of spies whose work helped bring Scotland into an incorporated Union with England in 1707.Marc's research interests include 17th and 18th-century literature and intellectual history, questions of sovereignty, naturalization and constitutionality, common sense philosophy, theories of intersubjectivity and communitarian ethics. He is also interested in varieties of Enlightenment thought, with a particular emphasis on the Haskalah (or Jewish Enlightenment) and its influence on contemporary literature, ethics and stand-up comedy.
