Dr. Allison Edgren is a historian of medieval Europe whose research interests center on the intersection between religious and social history. In particular, her work investigates a history of values as expressed through the treatment and lived experience of disadvantaged and marginal members of society. Her current project examines changes in the practice and perception of begging in the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries in southern German towns.
