Dr. Carolyn Salomons
Dr. Salomons earned her PhD in History in 2014, from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. Her research has focused on late medieval Spanish history, exploring relationships between Christians and Jews in the 15th century.
Currently, she is exploring ways in which the public consume history (fiction, film and TV, video games, etc.) and how academics can bridge the gap between professional and 'popular' history with their expertise.
She primarily teaches classes on medieval and early modern Europe.
