Logan Quigley is a Ph.D. student specializing in medieval English literature. Logan’s research considers the ways in which medieval understandings of cognition and memory shape the creation and reception of texts. He is also intrigued by spatial representation and perception, and his work brings research on spatial cognition into conversation with late medieval textual representations of space and travel. His most recent project examines Newberry Case MS 32, a fifteenth-century roll depicting the Stations of Rome, in order to better understand how spatial representation enables practices of mental pilgrimage. Find him on Twitter @lpquigley, where he won’t stop tweeting about The Lord of the Rings.
