Ty Davidian

PhD Student in Italian

Ty Davidian is a first-year PhD Student in Italian at Stanford, with additional focuses in Political Science and Religious Studies. He graduated from UCLA with a BA in Italian and Special Fields, and spent one year abroad at Università di Bologna where he studied European political relations.
At UCLA, he wrote a capstone thesis on 'Futurist Islam' and 'Fascist Islam' through the lens of F. T. Marinetti's Mafarka il futurista, Il tamburo di fuoco, and Il poema africano. The capstone invoked various aspects of Islamic theology and explored the evolving role, reception, and dissemination of Islam in Africa from Futurist-Fascist perspectives.
Ty's current research interests revolve around Futurism, Fascism, Orientalism, postcolonialism, migrant literature, ecocriticism, and neorealism.
In his free time, Ty is an IDM/lofi music producer, avid soccer fan, and snowboarder.
