Her lecture addresses the socio-political context of the practice and legal construction of ritual magic in fourteenth-century Languedoc, as well as how magical texts and knowledge were disseminated in Europe at the time. This research was recognized by a prestigious NEH Summer Stipend in 2013.
The School of Liberal Arts Lecture Series is intended to foster interdisciplinary conversation regarding the disciplines housed in the School of Liberal Arts. If you are interested in presenting a future installment of the Lecture Series, then submit a 500-word proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Queries are also welcome.
