About Me

Dawn is a PhD candidate based in the Trinity Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin. Her thesis,¬†The Black Widow of Breedon: Isolde Pantulf’s Life and Identity in England and Ireland 1170-1230 explores identity construction, women’s rights, and the rise of feminism under thirteenth-century English Common Law.

Dawn is the creator of Trinity HistoryCon, a blended academic conference and comic-con which celebrates the nexus of popular media and the study of history. The event brings together academic specialists, entertainment professionals, and the public to broaden the dialogue across barriers. Dawn co-created and edited the podcast The Hublic Sphere, a public humanities outreach initiative.

She holds two Master’s degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi in History and Anthropology and is due to complete her PhD in 2021.

Dawn is particularly interested in representations of medieval women in modern media.
