My interests lie broadly with the socio-cultural history of the Central Middle Ages in Europe. My research focuses on perceptions and representations of women’s power in medieval Europe and the Latin East, with an emphasis on England, France, and the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. I am particularly interested in women, how they exercised power, and the perceptions and representations of their power.
