“The Spectrum of Healers and Health Care in Late Medieval Provence: From Doctors to DIY Relics in the Care of Body and Soul”

Nicole Archambeau, Assistant Lecturer, University of California Santa Barbara, graduated in 2009 from UCSB and is now an American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) New Faculty Fellow. She takes an integrative approach to the history of healing in the later Middle Ages, focusing on medical and spiritual approaches. She is working on a book that explores how sufferers experienced and tried to heal sadness, desperation, and anxiety during the Hundred Years War and the first waves of plague.

A short reception will follow the lecture.
