Research: My motto is: “The Middle Ages Aren’t Old.” I am a scholar of medieval Europe by training, firmly grounded in contemporary global concerns. I study how the past shapes the present and how the present shapes our views of the past. My projects typically connect small things to big ideas: a single word choice to ethnic nationalism, an epigraph to colonial memory, a reader’s note in a book to social power relations. My most recent project has been supported by the Guggenheim Foundation and the American Council of Learned Societies.
