I am a medievalist and an adjunct college instructor in the humanities. My research includes medieval theologies of history, text/image relationships in visionary and mystical texts, and the writings of the twelfth-century Doctor of the Church, St. Hildegard of Bingen. I am also a translator of medieval Latin and German texts, especially as relate to my research.
My disciplines and areas of professional expertise include…
I teach in the first two semesters of the humanities core curriculum at Union College, covering the history, religion, and culture of the ancient world (Fall) and the period from the Roman Empire through the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and Reformation (Spring). I also have begun to offer a new Latin curriculum, which appeals to a broad spectrum of literature, history, philosophy, and religious studies students.
My teaching capabilities include…
