Jessica is an Historical Studies graduate student within the Faculty of Arts. Her current research looks at the role of letter-writing in transregional dynastic families and how heads of families ensured dynastic longevity through the epistolary co-operation of their kin. She has previously looked at gender and rulership within the Italian court of Ferrara and classifications of femininity in witchcraft.
She is also an associate of the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies within the School of Philosophical, Historical, and International Studies. You can find her online at academia.edu and on Twitter.
