1995.jpg For as long as I can remember, I have been enthralled by medieval English history. When I decided on a career path in academia in high school, I began dreaming of obtaining a post-graduate degree in England. My undergraduate work at the University of Florida allowed me to develop an interest in Anglo-Saxon slavery, and King’s hosts Dr. Alice Rio, one of the few scholars of early medieval slavery in the world. Naturally, I leapt at the chance to study at King’s.

I have even been awarded funding, which has enabled me to fulfil my dream of earning a degree in England. Being a student at King’s has opened my world to a wealth of resources I could have scarcely imagined as an undergraduate; London is the perfect place to study medieval history. Here exists a community of renowned historians, both at King’s and in the University of London’s Institute for Historical Research. Top-notch libraries and research facilities are at my fingertips, and the King’s Department of Digital Humanities has exposed me to the essential subject of digital resources.

Additionally, the structure of the program ensures that I build on the skills I need. Having taken years of only classical Latin, it is refreshing to sit in a course dedicated to medievalists. I also have the opportunity to study palaeography, a subject overlooked by many universities and yet crucial to historians. I know that my experience at King’s, as well as the people I’ve met, will provide me with a strong foundation for doctoral research and continuing on into the world of academia.
