Roberta Krueger

Burgess Chair of Romance Languages & Literature and Professor of French Roberta (Bonnie) Krueger recently delivered a plenary address for the combined meetings of the 15th Biennial Conference of the Early Book Society and the Fourth International Congress of the John Gower Society. The meetings were focused on “Gower, His Contemporaries and Their Legacy in MSS and Early Printed Books” and took place at the University of Durham, England.

Krueger’s paper was titled “Christine de Pizan and the Conduct of Life: Better Living through Books in the Middle Ages and Beyond.” She examined the legacy and influence of de Pizan’s didactic works in late medieval and early modern literature and, in particular, the evolution of the figure of the governess.
