Jon is a 2ndyear PhD student in Comparative Literature with a Minor in English. His research focuses on the literary production from England, Iberia, and Scandinavia during the Late Middle Ages. Jon studies how emotional discourses were coded in heroic narratives during this time period, and how these texts in turn served a prescriptive function for its audience. In addition, he is interested in how medieval communities understood memory as something dynamic; how they perceived the past, both historical and legendary, as an archive of narrative material that could be repurposed to address the concerns of their present. Jon’s other research and teaching interests include: Late Classical literature, Myth, and Trauma.
