My name is Eleanor Janega (Dr Janega, if you’re nasty), and for my sins I am a medieval historian. More specifically, I specialise in late medieval sexuality, apocalyptic thought, propaganda, and the urban experience in general, and in central Europe more particularly. I teach medieval and early modern history at the London School of Economics. I am the host of the Going Medieval series on HistoryHit TV, and the co-host of the history podcast We’re Not so Different.
Going Medieval is a project aimed at making medieval history accessible and entertaining for non-expert audiences. It exists to explain the medieval influences on the everyday world, and hopefully to get people through the quotidian grind of life in late stage capitalism.
If you want more of this premium content, you can consider ordering my book The Middle Ages, A Graphic History .
Otherwise my work can be found in The Washington Post, History Today, at the BBC History magazine, at sex education websites such as BISH, and on discerning erotica sites such as Frolic Me. (Yeah I said it. Your fav could never.) I am also all over TV and the radio whenever someone needs to talk about medieval dicks.
Still not enough? You can get at me over at twitter.
