Helen Sheppard Kay

Sarah Kay is a visiting faculty member in Spring 2023. She has taught and published on a wide range of literary texts in Medieval French and Occitan, and more lately Latin, typically approaching them in tandem with philosophical or reflective writings from antiquity to the present day. Her most recent book, published last July, is titled Medieval Song from Aristotle to Opera and comes with a companion website of recordings. Her current project is on the mediation of medieval astronomy by the other arts -- both the liberal arts, of which it is often the crowning discipline, and other art forms, including painting, poetry, and music.
