DR. CHRIS L. NIGHMAN
I'm a Professor of History at Wilfrid Laurier University, in Waterloo, Ontario, where I have taught courses on medieval, renaissance and early modern Europe since 1997. My graduate studies were pursued at the University of Toronto, where I received my MA in History in 1990 and my PhD in History in 1996...
RECENT & ONGOING RESEARCH
In June 2014 I delivered an invited research presentation at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, University of Pennsylvania, entitled “Digital florilegia: the Manipulus florum and Compendium moralium notabilium projects...and beyond”.
Since Fall 2015, the Chrysostomus Latinus in Iohannem Online (CLIO) Project has sought to provide transcriptions of all three Latin translations of John Chrysostom's 88 homilies on the Gospel of John. The project is expected to be completed by August 2021. For more information, see the project website: http://clioproject.net.
In 2014 I organized a colloquium at Wilfrid Laurier University on the construction and reception of Thomas of Ireland's Manipulus florum for a group of Canadian and international scholars, with support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and Laurier's Office of Research Services. The proceedings of this meeting, which I co-edited with Dr. Jacqueline Hamesse (U. Louvain) and Dr. Maria Jose Mũnoz Jiménez (U. Madrid), were published in 2019 by PIMS Publishers.
