Corinne Wieben teaches ancient and medieval European and Mediterranean history. She earned a B.A. in medieval studies from the University of California, Davis in 2001. In 2004, she completed an M.A. in history, and in 2010, she received her Ph.D. in history with an emphasis in medieval studies, both from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research combines legal and social history and uses records of marriage disputes in the fourteenth-century episcopal court of Lucca to explore how social, religious, and legal conceptions of marital gender roles affected and emerged from the strategies employed by litigants and their lawyers. She has presented papers at various academic conferences, including the annual meeting of the American Historical Association, the California Interdisciplinary Consortium for Italian Studies, and the Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, and she has presented at special seminars at the Huntingdon Library in Pasadena, California and the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Among the honors she has received are a Fulbright grant for study in Italy and the Medieval Academy of America Helen Maud Cam Dissertation Grant. Her publications include an article in the California Italian Studies Journal and an essay in a forthcoming volume edited by Daniel Bornstein and Laura Gaffuri.
At UNC, Dr. Wieben teaches courses in pre-modern western civilization, classical Greece and Rome, medieval Europe, women’s history, and the history of interfaith relations in the pre-modern Mediterranean.
