'Hospitals in the Middle Ages' conjures up the grim and gruesome in my mind and I wouldn't have readily (or willingly) associated them with recipes, however Lucy's week looks set to challenge this. For the weak-stomached there'll also be plenty of auditory pleasure in the form of opera and podcasts, all of which you can also find over on her regular Twitter account, @singingscholar.
Lucy Barnhouse has her Ph.D. (2017) from the History Department of Fordham University, New York. My research focuses on how the contested and evolving understandings of religious life in the later Middle Ages are reflected in hospital communities.
As is probably self-evident from my curation of this account, I am interested in the opportunities digital scholarship affords for creating conversations that reach beyond the academy. I’m a founding member of the Footnoting History podcast, where she has presented on topics including the history of medicine since 2013. My main Twitter account, @singingscholar, reflects my interest in opera as well as in medieval and medical history. My time at Fordham University facilitated this obsession with opera, which in turn has inspired my thinking about how humanists can combine and communicate our wide-ranging interests.
