Savoy Curry

Savoy Curry specializes in the history of marginalized people living in 11th-14th century Europe. With her current research, Savoy studies communal reactions to and regulations imposed upon female converts and sex workers in order to understand how both Jewish and Christian societies shaped religious boundaries in the High to Late Middle Ages. Prior to her time at Northwestern, Savoy earned a BA in History and in Medieval Studies at SUNY Binghamton. In addition to her academic work, Savoy occasionally writes blog articles for the Jewish Women’s Archive on a variety of topics, including history, food, and culture. When Savoy’s not researching or writing, you can usually find her knitting a sweater or running on some trails.
