From my research and teaching, it’s clear that I’m stimulated by questioning how and why we study the medieval. Sure, it’s a lot of fun to do so, but I think it’s useful to engage the public in what I find myself thinking about from time to time.

Here you’ll see some of my recent efforts in engaging the public in thinking about why the medieval matters, and you’ll find some select links to media attention and broadcasts of this work. You might also find my Twitter activity (@KennaOlsen) fun and useful.
