Mae Lyons-Penner

I am a medievalist working at the intersection of literature, history, theology and social theory. My dissertation examines the symbolic constructions of community in the thirteenth-century Arthurian Vulgate. I am also currently working on computational analysis of medieval texts and recently founded a Digital Humanities Reading Group for graduate students and early career scholars. Please email me if you would like to be added to the mailing list.
Beyond my research, I am passionate about making our global medieval heritage more accessible to contemporary audiences. To this end, I co-edit the Global Medieval Sourcebook alongside Professor Kathryn Starkey (German Studies). Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss a submission.
