Congratulations to/Félicitations à Hannah Kirby Wood, Honourable Mention for the Leonard Boyle Dissertation Award

23 Aug 2022 7:57 AM | Shannon McSheffrey (Administrator)

Dr. Hannah Kirby Wood's dissertation, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty: The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), was awarded an honourable mention for the CSM's Leonard Boyle Prize for best dissertation in Medieval Studies for 2022.

Dr. Wood’s dissertation addresses an important topic in a wonderful, interesting and wide-ranging way. Thanks to her, the development of voluntary poverty at the end of the Middle Ages must now be considered through the opposed prism of impoverishment of a part of society, social, theological and cultural History in a same spectrum of analysis.

Congratulations to Dr. Wood!

La thèse de Hannah Kirby Wood, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty : The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), a reçu une mention honorable pour le Prix Leonard Boyle du CSM pour la meilleure dissertation en études médiévales pour 2022.

La dissertation de Mme Wood aborde un sujet important d'une manière merveilleuse, intéressante et de grande envergure. Grâce à elle, le développement de la pauvreté volontaire à la fin du Moyen Âge doit désormais être considéré à travers le prisme opposé de l'appauvrissement d'une partie de la société, de l'histoire sociale, théologique et culturelle dans un même spectre d'analyse.

Félicitations à Dr Wood !
