W. John Bennett Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies and the Centre for Medieval Studies
Sabine von Heusinger is a Professor of Late Medieval History at the University of Cologne in Germany. Earlier, she has been a fellow at Morphomata International Center for Advanced Studies at University of Cologne and a Senior-Research Fellow at the Institute for Advances Studies for Junior Researchers at University of Konstanz. While she is in Toronto, her research will focus on water as a precondition for human life – without water survival is not possible. The topic “water” will allow her to explore numerous aspects of social, cultural and intellectual history in Late Medieval times.
