Michael Mango

Michael Mango is a Ph.D. candidate in the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard University. He studies modern European intellectual history, with a particular interest in the intersection of philosophy and religious thought in twentieth-century Germany and France. In his dissertation, Mango examines the widespread fascination with the body and nature in the interwar period by attending to some of the lesser-known moments in Walter Benjamin’s intellectual itinerary, including his encounters with Pierre Klossowski and Georges Bataille.

Mango holds a B.A. from Yale University and an M.T.S. from Harvard Divinity School.
