Shannon Cunningham

Shannon studied Old Norse and Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University (MA): her expertise in medieval studies is complemented by her long-standing interest in modern philosophy and critical theory. This background has fed directly into Shannon’s interest in publishing, and she began working with Brepols Publishers and Medieval Institute Publications in 2011. Shannon is committed to helping scholars develop their work to its very best and sharing their research findings with the wider community beyond traditional disciplinary lines. Beyond her work in publishing, she is a registered yoga teacher and craft coffee connoisseur based in sunny Milwaukee,  Wisconsin.
