Sessional Lecturer (2019-2020)

Office Location:  Sidney Smith Hall 3077


Katie Lindeman specializes in the social history of medieval religious groups, particularly Dominican preachers and inquisitors.  Her current book project investigates the relationship between secular ideals of gender and religious vocation in the Dominican Order from 1200-1400 and the impact of these gendered models on Dominican preaching and inquisitional work.  She has also published research in Speculum exploring the relationship between feuding rhetoric in the preaching of St. Vincent Ferrer and violence against Jews.  Her most recent research, funded by the Medieval Academy of American and the American Historical Association, has centered on the role played by Ferrer in the trajectory of Dominican inquisition in late medieval and early modern Valencia.  After receiving an MA and PhD from the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, she held teaching appointments in the Medieval Studies program at St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto and the History Department at McMaster University.
