While at the IAS, I will research and write a monograph tracing the story of Gregory the Great's encounter with "white" and "beautiful" English slaves from the early 700s to the present. I hope to elucidate the continuities as well as changes, through the centuries, in western attitudes toward somatic whiteness.
