About Dr. Nancy Ciccone:

Trained in comparative literature, I primarily research in two areas: 1) Medieval European literature and 2) the interstices between ancient and modern literatures. The disciplines of history and of philosophy inform my writing on medieval romance, practical reasoning and inner debates. For professional service, I continue as a bibliographer for the International Courtly Literature Society. My teaching ranges from entry level to graduate courses in which I aim to convey the continuing relevance of pre-modern narratives to our current population of students.
