The 2013-14 Donald Bullough Fellowship, based in the St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies, has been awarded to Dr Edward Coleman of the School of History & Archives at University College Dublin.

Dr Coleman’s research and teaching focuses on the history of medieval and Renaissance Italy. His publications have investigated various aspects of the society, politics and culture of the city-state in northern Italy during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, in particular civic identity and civic patriotism, historical consciousness and sense of the past, aristocratic power, representative assemblies, ritual space, factionalism and conflict resolution, landholding and property relations.  He has written extensively on the city of Cremona as well as on other cities such as Milan and Alessandria. His research has also looked at how perceptions of the medieval city-states in art, music and literature have been influential at key moments in the nineteenth and twentieth-century history of Italy, such as the Risorgimento. He is the author of ‘Cities and Communes’, in The Shorter Oxford History of Italy, vol. II (2003) and has also contributed to collections of translated primary sources for undergraduates such as Medieval Italy: Texts in Translation (2009). His current research projects are concerned with the contribution of Italy and Ireland to the Crusading movement.

Dr Coleman will be in St Andrews in semester 2 of academic year 2013-14 and will be working on a book on the Italian Communes.
