A native of Tennessee, Dr. Demacopoulos came to Fordham in 2002 after earning his PhD in Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A specialist in the history of Christianity, Dr. Demacopoulos has served on the executive board for the Center for Medieval Studies and was, for many years, a regular teacher in the Rose Hill Honors Program. Since founding the Orthodox Christian Studies Center with Aristotle Papanikolaou in 2012, he has dedicated his administrative time to building the Center’s endowment and starting a host of globally-recognized initiatives such as the National Endowment for the Humanities Matching Challenge Grant, which funds two annual research fellowships in Orthodox Studies at Fordham. Beginning in 2017, he will co-launch a new international and interdisciplinary journal in Orthodox Christian Studies.
