Biography

Dr. Enrico Dal Lago is originally from Italy, where he graduated as Dott. Lett. at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1988. Subsequently, he studied Archaeology in the United States, where he was awarded an M.A. in Anthropology at the University of Kansas in 1993. Between 1995 and 1999, he was a Teaching Fellow in the History Department of University College London, from where he received his Ph.D. in History. Since 1999, he has been Lecturer in American History in the History Department, School of Humanities, at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
Dr. Dal Lago is interested in examining the social and political history of the nineteenth-century United States from a comparative perspective. His studies focus on Slavery, the Abolitionist movement, and the Civil War in comparison and connection with contemporary events and social and political transformations in Europe, and especially in Italy during the age of the Risorgimento. His research builds upon the most recent scholarship in the comparative history of unfree labor and nationalism in the United States, the Atlantic World, and Europe.

Dr. Dal Lago is a member of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, and the Italian Fulbright Alumni Association. He was an Elected Member of the Membership Committee of the Southern Historical Association for 2002. He is also a member of the Organizing Committee of the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Society for the Historians of the Early American Republic (SHEAR) and a member of the Editorial Board of The Journal of Social History. He has served as manuscript reviewer for The Journal of American History, Comparative Studies in Society and History, The Journal of Historical Sociology, and Labor History.
In 2004, he was the main organizer of a three-day International Conference on "Slave Systems, Ancient and Modern" at the Moore Institute at NUI Galway. Between 2000 and 2005, Dr. Dal Lago was an active member in the project on “Atlantic and Intra-European Colonization, 1500-1900” organized by the Moore Institute at NUI, Galway.
Since 2010, Dr. Dal Lago is a member of the International Research Network on “The Second Slavery”, based at the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems, and Civilizations, in Binghamton University, S.U.N.Y. (State University of New York).In March 2011, he organized a Panel on “Antislavery, Liberalism, and Empire-Building: The United States and Europe, 1841-1881”, within the context of the special celebrations for the 150 years since the American Civil War, at the Annual Meeting of the Organization of American Historians (OAH), in Houston, Texas. In May 2011, Dr. Dal Lago organized - together with NUI, Galway’s Head of the Italian Department Professor Paolo Bartoloni - an international workshop on “Debating the Italian Nation: Historical and Cultural Perspectives”, to mark 150 years since Italy’s national unification.In July 2012, Dr. Dal Lago has organized a panel on "Antislavery and Abolitionism in the Early American Republic: Cross-National Currents and Comparisons" for the annual meeting of SHEAR (Society for Historians of the Early American Republic) in Baltimore, Maryland.
