Vanessa Corcoran

Adjunct Professor of History, Academic Counselor, Georgetown University

At Georgetown University, I advise students in my capacity as an academic counselor and also teach in the history department as an adjunct professor. In 2017, I defended my Ph.D. at The Catholic University of America (2017). My dissertation, "The Voice of Mary: Later Medieval Representations of Marian Communication," examined devotion to the Virgin Mary in the late Middle Ages. More broadly, research focuses on the intersection of medieval religious culture and gendered speech practices. I have presented papers at the American Historical Association and Medieval Academy of America annual conferences, and have also written for America Magazine and The Public Medievalist.
