Huneycutt, Lois

Professor Huneycutt specializes in medieval European history. Her research focuses on history of women and the family; the political history of England, France and Scandinavia; and the development and reception of Christianity within the various cultures of western medieval Europe. She teaches the medieval surveys classes (History 270 and 271) and a variety of specialty courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels, including “The Vikings in European History” and “Women and the Family in Medieval Europe.”

Professor Huneycutt’s publications include articles on European queenship and the role of royal and noble women in the 11th and 12th centuries. After completing a biographical study of England’s Queen Matilda II, who reigned from 1100-1118 as a consort of King Henry I, she is now engaged in a comparative study of the Anglo-Norman queens of England (1066-1154).
