Anne Lawrence-Mathers

Professor in Medieval History, University of Reading

I am a member of the Graduate Centre for Medieval Studies at ReadingI am also a member of the Organising Committee of the Research Group for Health Humanities.

My research interests centre on medieval magic and science, and on the interfaces and interactions between the two. Following research undertaken whilst I held an AHRC Research Leaders Fellowship, my most recent publication is a monograph on Medieval Meteorology (published by Cambridge University Press, November 2019).

I have also studied a wide variety of subjects related to Medieval History from the celebrations of Halloween and Christmas, to the the history of women's rights, and weather forecasts.
