Dr. Matt Kuefler
Professor of History

I teach Medieval European history, the history of sexuality, and historical methods. I received a Ph.D. in History from Yale University in 1995 (and also have an M.A. in Medieval Studies from Yale, 1991, and an M.A. in History from the University of Alberta, 1987). My research is on the intersections of gender, sexuality, medieval history, and Christianity. Here are some of my major publications (click on each of the images for more details):
