Dr. Megan Welton obtained her Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame. After defending her dissertation, she taught medieval history and conducted research in London as the Arts and Letters Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Notre Dame (U.S.A.) in England.
