“With deep expertise and imagination, Liz explores profound questions about what is and should be a crime through examining medieval laws and culture, with important implications for contemporary legal issues,” said Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School. “Already a significant contributor to scholarship in legal history, Liz first developed her interests as a Harvard undergraduate and pursued the work with rigor through her time as a truly impressive Harvard Law School student and more recently in prize-winning work for the Ph.D. at the University of Michigan. I’m thrilled to welcome her back to Cambridge as a member of the faculty, and I’m excited for students to experience her exceptional teaching and her collegiality.”
