Personal profile

Research interests

I am a PGR at the University of Manchester undertaking a thesis entitled: Resistance to inquisition in the double towns of Languedoc, 1229-1330. My research focuses on the intersection of political, religious and urban history in medieval Languedoc. I am particularly interested in the impact of urban institutions on political narratives, communal perceptions and collective punishments. My research interests include heresy and inquisition, medieval urban history, urban theory, economic anthropological approaches to urban history and the economics of persecution.
