Jason Stubblefield is a doctoral candidate in the department of history, where he studies ecclesiastical history, biblical exegesis, and liturgy in the medieval west. Jason's current research explores the place of religion in the historical thought of Anglo-Norman England. He is particularly interested in how sacred conceptions of the past, ever present in liturgy and the reading of the Bible, influenced a monk who was also a prolific historian: William of Malmesbury.
His research has been supported by the Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the University of Tennessee Humanities Center, the Center for Global Engagement at the University of Tennessee, and the University of Tennessee History Department. While working as a teaching assistant and writing tutor, Jason has also served as the graduate representative for the Marco Institute's Steering Committee and as a member of the History Department's Graduate Affairs Committee. Jason is also an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church.
