Ellen Wurtzel Article Published in "French Historical Studies"
August 23, 2023
Associate Professor Ellen Wurtzel published an article in the August 2023 issue of French Historical Studies, entitled "Passionate Encounters, Public Healing. Medieval Urban Bathhouses in Northern France." Using medical treatises, trial records, literary sources, and archival documentation, the article argues that, far from being sites primarily associated with crime and prostitution, bathhouses encouraged sociability, brought disparate groups together, and were in fact essential to the circulation and well‐being of people in medieval cities as places of emotional community.
Ellen Wurtzel Interviewed
June 22, 2017
Ellen Wurtzel, associate professor of history, was interviewed for the Royal Studies Journal blog about her article "The Joyous Entry of Albert and Isabella in Lille: History, Conquest and the Making of Belgium” which appeared in a December 2016 issue of the Royal Studies Journal (RSJ) called Taking Possession: Royal Entries in the Early Modern Period. The piece was developed from a paper she delivered at the 2015 Sixteenth-Century Studies annual conference and investigates the way that the city’s history was used to establish loyalty to the prince and envision a new empire in the midst of war and religious conflict.
