Dr. Bulman was born in Syracuse, New York and raised in Wisconsin and Michigan. She became interested in medieval history after living in France as a child. Dr. Bulman's research draws on medieval ecclesiastical court records from the French diocese of Mende in the county of the Gevaudan, which she uses to investigate cultural topics. Her book, The Court Book of Mende and the Secular Lordship of the Bishop, concerns the maintenance of historical memory in the county of the Gevaudan. Her current project explores the dissemination of magical texts in the Gevaudan. When she is not happily combing through medieval court records, Dr. Bulman enjoys walking her dog Aurelius, listening to the music of J S Bach, and traveling in Europe.
