WLL Professor Jennifer Brown Publishes New Book
“The book is a ‘festschrift’ which is volume celebrating someone, in this case my dissertation advisor Michael Sargent,” says Dr. Brown. “Another former student of his, Nicole Rice, and I solicited essays related to and building on his work from colleagues and former students. My essay is on the medieval nuns of Syon Abbey and the texts they read there—texts I also teach in my Medieval Literature courses.”
Before publishing Manuscript Culture and Medieval Devotional Traditions, Dr. Brown also published Fruit of the Orchard: Catherine of Siena in Late Medieval and Early Modern England in 2018, Sexuality, Sociality and Cosmology in Medieval Texts in 2013, and more.
