We are pleased to announce that Sam Boss (ABD, Brown University) has joined the office staff. He will be working as an editorial assistant, alongside Erin Pomeroy. His dissertation, “Outsiders: Crisis and Community in Late Medieval France”, looks at the short and long-term effects of plague, war, and economic upheaval on municipal policies towards people who came from somewhere else – whether a distant kingdom or a neighboring village – focusing on three diverse commercial centers in different regions of France: Montpellier, Lyon, and Rouen.
