Late Antique and Medieval Christianity and Gender

This year, I am convening Hist 115, our department's introductory module on premodern European history for the third year.

Medievalisms, Medieval Historiography, and Collecting in Europe and the United States

I am very interested in the impact of the Middle Ages on nineteenth- and twentieth-century nations, nationalism, and cultural institutions (learned societies, museums, governmental bodies, and so on). My special subject module (fall 2020) looks at nineteenth and twentieth-century medievalism, and analyses why the Middle Ages had so much appeal in the modern era in Europe and North America.

Colonial and Imperial Archaeology

Having just completed a project on French colonial archaeology in Algeria from 1830 to 1870, I have developed a new second-year module for spring term (2021) on colonial and imperial archaeology and museums. With Liverpool's rich collection of artifacts (acquired during the period of the British Empire's broadest reach), I look forward to working with students in local museums, particularly the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery.
