Brackett, John K.

John K. Brackett is Associate Professor of History, with a specialty in the Italian Renaissance. He was awarded the PhD. in History from the University of California at Berkeley. Brackett is currently teaching at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. Professor Brackett has published a monograph, Criminal Justice and Crime in Late Renaissance Florence, 1537-1609, with Cambridge University Press. Brackett has also published on violence in early modern Tuscany, and the Florentine regulation of prostitution over 500 years. Following an interest in black Africans and their descendents in Europe, Professor Brackett is currently working on a book dealing with the first Medici duke, Alessandro (1510/11-1537), whose mother was a black African slave woman. The book will, among other issues, explore the idea of race in the Italian Renaissance.
