Ward to Present at Triangle Medieval Studies Seminar

Instructor of English Jessica Ward is presenting at the Triangle Medieval Studies Seminar at the National Humanities Center on October 28. Ward will present “The Social Critique of Avarice in Estates Satire and Statuses Summae,” which considers how Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower, and William Langland were troubled by the issues undermining the principle of common profit and ultimately how their understanding of that idea shapes, or is shaped by, their conception of avarice.
