Jeffrey Wayno (rapporteur for the Seminar on Medieval Studies) defended his dissertation last week: “Communication and the Limits of Papal Authority in the Medieval West, 1050-1250.” The dissertation was advised by Professor Adam Kosto (History), and the committee consisted of Professors Susan Boynton (Music), Richard John (Journalism and History), Neslihan Senocak (History), and Robert Somerville (Religion and History).

In the fall, Jeffrey will begin as Council on Learning and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for Medieval Studies at Columbia University.

Congratulations, Jeffrey!
