MAA News – MAA@Leeds

Jeffrey J. Cohen (George Washington Univ.) presented the Medieval Academy Annual Lecture at the Leeds International Medieval Congress on 4 July. His paper, titled “Outside Noah’s Ark: Sympathy and Survival as the Waters Rise,” explored medieval ideas about those left behind by the Great Flood and considered how Noah and his family were thought to have responded to the dead and dying. The Medieval Academy reception afterwards was well-attended and gave our European colleagues an opportunity to meet members of the Academy staff and governance and to learn more about who we are and what we do. The Graduate Student Committee hosted a successful reception on Monday evening.
