March FGCU Author Series

Congratulations to Dr. Melodie Harris Eichbauer, our 13th honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored by FGCU faculty and staff! Dr. Eichbauer’s edited work, Law as Profession and Practice in Medieval Europe: Essays in Honor of James A. Brundage, will be featured on the Library homepage during the month of March and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the New Books Area.

Dr. Eichbauer holds a Ph.D. in History from The Catholic University of America and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences at FGCU, where she teaches courses in Medieval History, the Crusades, the Renaissance, and more. Her research and teaching interests include Medieval Europe, legal and ecclesiastical history, religious and political culture, Late Antiquity, Germanic kingdoms, Early Modern Europe, and the Renaissance and Reformation.  She was a finalist for the FGCU Junior Faculty Teaching Excellence Award in 2013 and is currently working on a monograph that is provisionally titled The Concordia Discordantium Canonum and the Long Twelfth Century: Gratian amid an Age of Continuity and Change.

Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected, presented by an accompanying poster, and featured on the Library’s website. Everyone is encouraged to view the display of our FGCU authors’ recent works. Any of the Author Series books in the General Collection are available for check out. Authors are encouraged to donate a copy of their book(s) to the Library by contacting their subject specialist.
