About

"I am a historian of western Europe and the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages (roughly speaking, 500-1500 CE). My research focuses mainly on the movement of people, goods, and ideas in the pre-modern world, and on the ways in which law and society shape each other. I am particularly interested in the history of banishment, deportation, and exileand especially the increasing frequency of mass expulsion from the European Middle Ages onward. I also work on the history of moneylending and economic thought. Often, I grapple separately with each of these topics in my own research, but the long history of antisemitism is a troubling and timely thread that draws them all together."
