Ty Davidian

PhD Student in Italian

Ty Davidian is a first-year PhD Student in Italian with additional interests in French literature 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 aspects of Islamic theology and explored the evolving role of Islam in Italian East Africa from a Futurist perspective. His primary research interests revolve around Futurism, Fascism, migrant literature, and ecocriticism.
In his free time, Ty is an IDM/lofi music producer, avid soccer fan, and snowboarder.
