I have a new blog post on Medium, entitled “The New Moralists.” It discusses what a recent Democratic Senate bill has in common with draconian legislation passed in England after the Black Death of 1348.
I have a piece on Medium about the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381, Piers Plowman, and our current political/aesthetic moment in 2018.
I have a piece on Medium reflecting on the first day of spring in light of human-caused climate change and medieval poetry.
I have a piece on Piers Plowman and 21st-century higher ed out this month in Boston College Magazine.
I have a new essay on David Perry’s blog, How Did We Get into This Mess?, called “What Is Education For? – To Kill a Mockingbird and Medieval Literature.” It’s about Biloxi School District’s decision last month to ban (then partially unban) To Kill a Mockingbird.
