UCF history professors published a variety of research in recent months

From a guide to the Holy Roman Empire to an essay on gendered roles in medieval and early modern England, UCF history professors have published a wide variety of work in the past few months. We’ve rounded up the latest places you can explore research by the department’s faculty members:

Duncan Hardy

Assistant professor Duncan Hardy is a historian of Central Europe in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, specializing in the history of the Holy Roman Empire. His recent guide to the Holy Roman Empire was published by Oxford Bibliographies Online. Hardy also published an Open Access article in a volume with Amsterdam University Press addressing one of the thorniest questions in German historiography: whether the Empire consisted of a multitude of small “territorial states.”

John M. Sacher

Associate professor John M. Sacher’s new book, Confederate Conscription and the Struggle for Southern Soldiers, was the number-one new release in U.S. Civil War Confederate history on Amazon in December. He also spoke about his book on the Author’s Corner podcast produced by Current, an online journal on contemporary culture, politics and ideas.

Edward Dandrow

Assistant professor Edward Dandrow had two articles published in recent months. “The Coinage of Anthemusia: A Study of Coin Types and Iconography” was published in Revue Numismatique 178 and “An Unpublished Medallion of Elagabalus from Edessa in Osrhoene: Nergal and Syro-Mesopotamian Religious Continuity?” in KOINON IV.

Peter Larson

Department Chair and associate professor Peter Larson had an essay on “Gendered roles and female litigants in northeastern England, 1300-1530” published in the collection Litigating Women: Gender and Justice in Europe, c.1300-c.1800. The collection offers insight into the motivations and strategies of women who engaged in legal action in premodern Europe.

Vladimir Solonari

Associate professor Vladimir Solonari’s book A Satellite Empire: Romanian Rule in Southwestern Ukraine 1941-1944 was published in a Romanian translation. The book was previously awarded honorable mention by the American Association of Ukrainian Studies, who described it as “a pioneering, comprehensive, nuanced and insightful contribution of Ukrainian history.”
