Michael Gervers

Michael Gervers has been teaching History and Art History at the University of Toronto since 1976 (after three years as Assistant Professor at New York University), and has been Full Professor since 1984.

He is also founder, and director, of the Central and Inner Asia Seminar (CIAS) and, together with Ewa Balicka-Witakowska of Uppsala University, has established Mazgaba Se’elet, an on-line database of over 65,000 photographs, largely his own, of Ethiopian art and culture.

His course at UTSC on the Cultural History of Ethiopia (HISC52H3) is unique in North America. He is presently working with Paulina Rousseau in a UTSC Library project which will make the entire manuscript collection of the 15th-century Ethiopian monastery at Gunda Gunde (Tigray Province) available on line. Other interests include aspects of the ancient art and archaeology of Mongolia.
