Jesse Wayne Torgerson

Jesse W. Torgerson's teaching and research interests are in the medieval period, particularly in exchanges and interactions between the societies and cultures of Europe and the Mediterranean basin.
His current book project re-creates the dramatic ninth-century political context surrounding the collaborative compilation of the famous Byzantine history of the universe, the Chronography (or Chronicle) of George Synkellos and Theophanes the Confessor.

Please visit his website to connect with ongoing collaborative projects, or to learn more about current teaching and research interests.
