Robin Pokorski

Robin Pokorski is a second-year doctoral student with a focus on medieval Europe. She is particularly interested in exploring the ways in which medieval religious women developed friendships, communities, and networks, as well as their intellectual lives. Robin is also interested in the ways in which medieval churchmen thought and wrote about gender categories, even when no women were actually present. Other areas of interest include saints' relics and medieval parishes. Robin holds a BA (summa cum laude) from The George Washington University in history and classical studies.
