About Me

Dr James L. Smith completed a History doctoral thesis in 2013 at the University of Western Australia, entitled “Water as Medieval Intellectual Entity: Case Studies in Twelfth-Century Western Monasticism”. This blog tracked his progress through PhD, together with some post-PhD thoughts.

The book that emerged from this research is now available as Water in Medieval Intellectual Culture: Case Studies from Twelfth-Century Monasticism (Brepols, 2018).

This blog is an archive of posts written during James’ PhD candidature, and is no longer actively maintained. Please feel free to take a stroll. His current work is available at Humanities Commons or his new blog, Scrivener & Smith. James is also on Twitter.
