New Book on the Hundred Years War Features Essay by WLL Professor Jennifer Brown

Professor of Writing, Literature, and Language Jennifer Brown, Ph.D., has an essay featured in Literatures of the Hundred Years War.

The book, which hits shelves next month, examines the international consequences that the war had on on European literature in the 14th and 15th century. From the publisher’s website:

Writers, whether as witnesses, diplomats, or provocateurs, played key roles in shaping the conflict, and the conflict equally impacted the course of literary history. The volume shows how a wide variety of genres and works are deeply engaged with responses to the war, from women’s visionary writing by figures like Catherine of Siena to anonymous lyric poetry, from Christine de Pizan’s Book of the City of Ladies to Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

Dr. Brown’s essay, “Visionary women, the Papal Schism and the Hundred Years War: Bridget of Sweden and Catherine of Siena in medieval England,” is one of twelve pieces included in the book.

At MMC, Dr. Brown teaches many classes in the Department of Writing, Literature, and Language, including History of the English Language and Dragons, Knights, and Damsels: The Middle Ages. She has published a number of books – most recently, Manuscript Culture and Medieval Devotional Traditions: Essays in Honour of Michael G. Sargent (published in 2021) and Fruit of the Orchard: Catherine of Siena in Late Medieval and Early Modern England (published in 2018).

On April 16, Literatures of the Hundred Years War will be available to buy as an eBook for 1 cent!

Congratulations, Dr. Brown!
