Jordan Chauncy

Ph.D. Student


Jordan Chauncy is a third-year Ph.D. student in the Medieval Studies Program. He is currently interested in fashioning identity and the material realities of embodiment in late medieval literature, with a special interest in cross-dressings and trans theory. His research and his thoughts on bodies and embodiment are indebted to both monster theory and disability studies. He completed his B.A. in English at Loyola University New Orleans with a research thesis on the construction of identity through cloth on the early modern stage, arguing for an expansion of what qualifies as a cross-dressing play. He believes in an accessible Middle Ages and believes this must mean more than just “readable.”
