Join Dr. Carissa Harris, Assistant Professor of English at Temple University, for a presentation on consent in the Middle Ages. Alcohol- or drug-impaired sexual consent has been central to numerous recent high-profile legal cases, including Bill Cosby's trials in 2017 and 2018 and Brock Turner's 2016 trial. We tend to view this as a recent phenomenon; back in the day, the thinking goes, alcohol- or drug-facilitated sexual assault wasn't considered to be assault. However, medieval texts shed new light on this issue with their persistent focus on the relationship between intoxication, consent, harm, and responsibility.

Join Dr. Sara M. Butler, King George III Professor in British History at Ohio State University, for a presentation on medieval forensics. Using the coroner's inquest as a lens offers a fresh perspective on the process of death investigation in medieval England. The medieval relationship with death and disease, in particular, shaped coroners' and their jurors' understanding of the inquest's medical needs and led them to conclusions that can only be understood in context of the medieval world's holistic approach to health and medicine.
