Faculty from the University of Vermont Departments of History, English, Religion, and Romance Languages organized a highly successful third year of the College of Arts and Sciences Medieval Studies Lecture Series, including:
October 4, Andrea Tarnowski (Dartmouth College), “On the Long Road of Learning with Christine de Pizan.”
November 9, Miri Rubin (Queen Mary, University of London), “The Child Murder Accusation against the Jews of Norwich: Meaning, Memory and Legacy.”
April 3, Bruce Hayes (University of Kansas), “Castigating Comedy: Sardonic Laughter and the French Wars of Religion.”
April 20, Amy Appleford (Boston University), “Dying Daily: The Vernacular Office of the Dead in Late Medieval England.”
April 30, Craig Taylor (University of York), “Loyalty and Fidelity in French Chivalric Culture.”
These talks were generously supported by the CAS Dean’s Office, the UVM Humanities Center, the Miller Center for Holocaust Studies, Bailey-Howe Library Special Collections, and the Departments of History, Religion, and Romance Languages. We are already looking forward to the fourth annual series, with Sylvain Piron (EHESS), Martine Pagan (Sorbonne), and Michael Bailey (Iowa State) on the schedule for the fall.
