Professor Hobbins is a historian of high and late medieval Europe with a particular interest in the cultural and intellectual history of the period from 1300 to 1500. Under this broad heading, his research has focused on late medieval authorship (through the example of Jean Gerson), Joan of Arc, and backgrounds to print. He is currently working on two book-length projects: a history of the authorial colophon from 1100 to 1500 and a study of the origins of print.
