Date Range
Add to Calendar 2017-11-20 16:00:00 2017-11-20 17:00:00 CMRS Colloquium: Ellen Arnold, Ohio Wesleyan

Join us for a conversation on "Rivers and Riverscapes in Early Medieval Gaul."

Ellen Arnold teaches Ancient, Medieval, and Early Modern History at Ohio Wesleyan. She is interested in the ways medieval people incorporated nature and the environment into both their everyday life and into their cultural imagination.

Arnold’s current research project, “Cultural and Religious Views of Rivers in the Middle Ages,” explores medieval attitudes toward rivers and water resources. The project draws on narrative sources such as miracle collections, saints’ lives, and histories. Analyzing these sources for environmental themes reveals the complexity of medieval understandings of water and the natural world, and highlights the depth of their engagement with riverine ecosystems.
 
Dr. Arnold speaks about her work in this short video.
 
The CMRS faculty and graduate student colloquium series gives members of our community a chance to present their new or in-progress work to their colleagues in an informal setting.
