Alice Morandy

Graduate Student

Alice Morandy studies the intersection of gender and disability studies in thirteenth-century Normandy. More specifically, her dissertation mobilizes a combination of miracle narratives and economic documents, like charters, to access the lived experiences of women, children and the disabled in rural communities. She is interested in exploring how these communities respond to and deal with trauma as well as discerning patterns of care in ordinary thirteenth-century households. She is currently a Georges Lurcy Fellow for the academic year, 2023-24. 

Before coming to Princeton, Alice graduated cum laude from UCLA, earning a B.A. in English and History. She then pursued an M.A. in medieval history at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales. Her master’s thesis focused on gender relations in the high medieval monastery of the Paraclete in Champagne, France.
