Katherine Churchill, Plague and Textual Organization in Late Medieval French and English Literature

Wednesday, March 6, 2024 4:30 pm to 6 pm

Katherine Churchill studies and teaches medieval literature. Her dissertation project, The Archival Turn: Poetry and Posterity in England and France, 1300-1491, traces how archival practices, like cataloguing and document storage, changed during fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, transforming literary writing in the process. In addition to her work on media and infrastructural history and cultural memory, she also studies virginity, gender, orality, and nineteenth-century medievalism. Churchill also writes about literature and medieval culture for broader audiences and runs the Public Facing Scholarship Kohler Seminar at UVA. Her essays have appeared in outlets such as Literary Hub, Oxford American Magazine, Public Books, Electric Literature.
