Charles Zika is a cultural historian of late medieval and early modern Europe. He is Professorial Fellow in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies and Chief Investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, 1100-1800, which is funded from 2011-2018. Charles' research has focused on the cultural, religious and visual history of northern and central Europe in the late medieval and early modern periods, and especially on the German-speaking lands. His publications have covered topics such as humanism and magic, the German Reformation, the social construction of knowledge, sexuality and moral order, religious practices and authority, folklore and celebrations of the past, print culture and memory, cannibalism and images of witchcraft. His publications include The Appearance of Witchcraft: Print and Visual Culture in Sixteenth-Century Europe (2007), The Four Horsemen: Apocalypse, death and disaster (2012 exhibition catalogue co-edited with Cathy Leahy and Jennifer Spinks), and the forthcoming volume Disaster, Death and the Emotions in the Shadow of the Apocalypse, 1400-1700 (co-edited with Jennifer Spinks). His most recent research interests lie in the intersection of religion, emotion visual culture and print in German-speaking Europe between the 15th and 18th centuries.
