Dr Zubin Mistry
Zubin Mistry is a cultural historian who works on religion, medicine and society in the Early Middle Ages. He first came to UCL in 2005 to begin an MA in Ancient History but was soon converted to medieval history.
Zubin is currently finishing a monograph for publication with York Medieval Press/Boydell & Brewer, which builds on his PhD thesis completed in 2011. Early medieval discourse on abortion has been underwritten in broader histories of abortion, and his monograph traces the evolving ways in which churchmen, rulers and communities construed abortion as a moral and social problem in western Europe from the sixth to early tenth centuries.
More broadly, Zubin is interested in the history of pastoral care and penance, marriage and sexuality, the theory and practice of early medieval law, and early medieval medicine, especially reproductive medicine. Bringing together religious, medical and political history, his next project will examine approaches to infertility in the Carolingian period.
Zubin is co-convenor of the new first year course, Making History, a tutor on another new first year course, Writing History, and also teaches seminar classes on The Middle Ages survey course.
