Research interests: Cristina Politano studies Latin, Old French, and Anglo-Norman literature, particularly texts at the crossroads of hagiography, historiography, and romance. Her dissertation focused on the translation and circulation of these texts across the medieval Mediterranean. Ultimately, her work focuses on the ideological conditions that allowed for the rewriting of the lives of biblical/apocryphal women: the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and other early Christian saints whose cults became popular in medieval France. Her research brings the work of modern thinkers such as Kristeva, Cixous, Irigaray, and Simone de Beauvoir in dialogue with these twelfth- and thirteenth-century narratives, interrogating the medieval saint’s legacy on modern culture and thought.
