- About Me
I am a professor of history (emerita) at the University of Calgary.
For 35 years, I have studied medieval France from Marseille’s oldest archival series, with a interest on labour, family and religious history. My current research focuses on testamentary practice in the late Middle Ages, with a special emphasis on female spirituality.
