Amy Kaufman (PhD ’06) Publishes Book Connecting Modern Extremism to the Medieval Past

book cover for The Devil's Historians

Amy S. Kaufman (PhD ’06) has published her book, The Devil’s Historians: How Modern Extremists Abuse the Medieval Past, via the University of Toronto Press. Co-written with Paul B. Sturtevant, this book “examines the many ways in which the medieval past has been manipulated to promote discrimination, oppression, and murder,” revealing “a medieval world not often shown in popular culture: one that is diverse, thriving, courageous, compelling, and complex.”

Dr. Kaufman defended her dissertation, “‘Ye are nat wyse to kepe the swerde fro me’: Feminist re-vision of Malory’s ‘Morte Darthur'” in 2006 under the direction of Kathleen Coyne Kelly, Laura Green, Francis Blessington, and Elizabeth Sklar.
