Megan Welton obtained her Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame. After defending her dissertation, she was the Arts and Letters Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Notre Dame (U.S.A.) in England. At Utrecht University, she is a postdoctoral researcher on the NWO-VICI "Citizenship Discourses in the Early Middle Ages" project, during which she will analyze the intersection between citizenship discourses and material culture in the early medieval world. Her wider interests include late antique and early medieval political thought, the formation and manipulation of memory and rhetoric, and how these concepts shape and were shaped by early medieval rulers.
