Eve Salisbury and Jana Schulman, both medievalists at Western Michigan University, have recently joined the advisory board of Medievally Speaking, the online review arm of Studies in Medievalism, the leading publication investigating the ongoing reception of the Middle Ages in postmedieval times. While Medievally Speaking draws from a vast pool of international scholars dedicated to the multilingual and interdisciplinary negotiation of medievalia, it is also firmly anchored in the English Department at WMU, with Richard Utz as editor and Mustafa Mirzeler, Eve Salisbury, and Jana Schulman as members of the advisory board.
Her publications include three volumes for the Middle English Text Series—The Trials and Joys of Marriage, Four Romances of England, and The Middle English Breton Lays—an edited collection, Domestic Violence in Medieval Texts, in which her essay on Chaucer's 'wife' and the law appears, and essays in journals such as Medieval and Early Modern English Studies, Studies in the Age of Chaucer, a monograph series (Speculum Sermonis), and special collections on medieval violence. She has written book reviews for Speculum and reviewed submissions for PMLA, The Journal of English and Germanic Philology, Chaucer Review, and Brepols. Her current research focuses on domesticity and the concept of the child in Chaucer's work as well as intersections of poetry, legal fiction, and historical documentation. Salisbury has presented her work in over forty conferences both in the U.S. and abroad. She has served as senior editor of Comparative Drama since 2003.
