Jeremy DeAngelo is a visiting professor of medieval literature at Carleton College for the 2106-2017 year. His primary expertise is early English, Irish, and Norse language and culture. He got his doctorate in medieval studies from the University of Connecticut in 2013, and, since then, he has held fellowships at the Folger Shakespeare Library and Rutgers University's Center for Cultural Analysis. He is particularly interested in cultural diversity in the Middle Ages and the ways in which environment shapes literature.

Jesse Izzo recent PhD in History.

Rachel D. (Gibson) Joyeux received her PhD in French from the University of Minnesota in 2016. Her research focuses primarily on Mediterranean cross-cultural relations and trade as transformers of class, nationality, and identity in medieval literature. Considering spaces of exchange in the medieval text, her project analyzes crucial moments of cultural definition and appropriation as they occur in markets, urban centers, and trade routes, arguing that these figurative intersections are critical to rethinking the coexistence of commerce and lordship in medieval France and Italy.
