February 2023 – Visiting Professor from Penn State University

We were delighted to welcome Professor Benjamin Hudson from the Department of History at Penn State University for a visit to the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Bristol in February–March 2023. Ben’s visit was funded by the Benjamin Meaker Follow-on Fund, a University of Bristol scheme for supporting return visits from international research collaborators. Ben first visited Bristol as a Benjamin Meaker Fellow in 2019, so this was another opportunity to share our research on medieval borders and borderlands. As an expert in medieval Irish and Atlantic borders, Ben’s research adds an important dimension to the network’s research aims. While in Bristol, Ben worked with Helen Fulton on research questions and methodologies for border research, and Ben delivered a public lecture, ‘Dangerous Company: Five Questions about Macbeth‘, which explored the social context of the historical figure of Macbeth and how Shakespeare had adapted his life to form the basis of his play.
