Clare Monagle

Clare Monagle is an Associate Investigator, an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher, and Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University. She is a graduate of Monash and the Johns Hopkins Universities. She received her PhD in 2007. She is broadly interested in history of intellectuals in the Middle Ages, as well as the histories of the institutions that housed them. Her work is also concerned with the “medievalism” of twentieth and twenty-first century thought, that is, the uses to which the concept of the medieval is put within definitions of modernity and progress.

She has published articles in Viator, Parergon, postmedieval, Culture, Theory and Critique, Medioevo and The Journal of Religious History. In 2013 she published Orthodoxy and Controversy in Twelfth Century Religious Discourse: Peter Lombard’s Sentences and the Development of Theology, with Brepols. She is co-editor, with Dr Juanita Ruys, of A Cultural History of the Emotions in the Medieval Age,  published by Bloomsbury in 2019. In 2020 she published Scholastic Affect: Gender, Maternity and the History of Emotions with Cambridge University Press.
