Medieval & Early Modern European history; history of the book
Dr. Kuzdale researches on the reception and influence of the works of Pope Gregory the Great in the literary, religious, and artistic culture of Medieval and Early Modern Europe. She has published on “Gregory the Great in the Renaissance" (Companion to Gregory the Great, 2013) and “The English Reformation: Tradition and Change," (2017) for the Newberry Library's Digital Collections for the Classrooms series. Dr. Kuzdale has given various conference papers on the manuscripts and transmission of Gregory's Dialogues and the memory of Gregory in the early middle ages. Her current work focuses on the authority of patristic authors in the 16th- and 17th-century with attention to the opera omnia collections of Pope Gregory. Dr. Kuzdale is also interested in local Chicago history which has led her to study and write on its monuments and memorialization of the American Civil War.
Dr. Kuzdale teaches Medieval History, History of the Vikings, and the History of Witchcraft in Europe.
