Benedict Karl V. Pasaporte


I took my undergraduate studies in European Studies in 2012 at the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City, Philippines. My specialized track within my major was international relations, while at the same time I took a minor in history, as well as a required minor in German. I graduated in 2016 before moving to Canada with my family the next year. I then took a post-graduate certificate program in Museum and Cultural Management at Centennial College from 2018 to 2019.

My main research interests in history are diplomatic/international history, and early modern Europe up until 1815. My thesis, under the supervision of Andrew Jainchill, explores the influence of philosopher Edmund Burke’s ideas on the framing of the Congress of Vienna. My other general thematic interests include intellectual history, cultural history, and religious history.
