Nancy Bisaha received her  B.A. from Rutgers College in 1990 and her Ph. D. from Cornell University  in 1997, where she worked under the direction of John Najemy. In 2004  Bisaha published Creating East and West: Renaissance Humanists and the  Ottoman Turks (UPenn Press), which examines the ways in which humanists created an intellectual discourse depicting the Ottoman Turks as a  cultural and religious other. She has recently completed a translation of Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini's De Europa in collaboration with Robert Brown and is currently working on an intellectual biography of Piccolomini (Pope Pius II, d. 1464).   She is  an active member of Medieval and Renaissance Studies and served as coordinator of the program in 2007-2008.
