As the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Affairs of the Department of History, I advise all History majors who are not in the Honors College as well as all History minors and other students who are taking or interested in taking courses about history. My teaching is concentrated on pre-modern European history. I teach the department’s courses on English constitutional and legal history (HST 350 and 351, the latter of which actually attempts to cover British history up to the present day). In addition, in recent years I have taught several sections of the department’s introductory seminar for undergraduates, HST 201, most recently on the subject of medieval English peasants, as well as HST 205B (Europe in the Middle Ages) HST 331 (Roman History) and HST 340 (English History to 1688). My research is on Anglo-Norman customary law in the eleventh and twelfth century, on which I have published one book (Transfers of Property in Eleventh-Century Norman Law) and quite a few articles.
