Megan R. Perry is a doctoral student still in coursework at the University of Kentucky. She did her undergraduate work in medieval theology and literature at the Baylor Honors College before coming to Kentucky in 2016. A student of Prof. Abigail Firey, Megan works on the intersections between exchange and ethical thought in Carolingian Francia. Her M.A. thesis, "All That Glitters Is Not Gold: Theories of Noblesse Oblige in Carolingian Francia," argued that Carolingian ethical discourse about the vice of greed and its corresponding virtue of largesse was particularized according to social rôle and the exchanges performed by persons in each rôle. She pursues complementary interests in Ricardian literature: study of fourteenth-century Middle English texts like Piers Plowman illuminate parallel tensions between ethics and economics in different geographic and temporal contexts from those in which she normally works. She is currently a Teaching Assistant for Prof. Jeremy Popkin's HIS 121, "War and Society, 1914-1945".
