About

Dr. Pareles (pronouns: ze/they/he/she) is a medievalist working on two book projects. The Strain of Purity: Jewish Law in Old English Vernacular Translation argues that the cultural translation of Jewish law was central to pre-Conquest English identity projects, including promotion of monastic chastity and ecclesiastial sovereignty over the secular. The second, tentatively titled Time’s Others: Infant, Animal, and Jewish Temporalities in Medieval Christianity, explores the abjected, arrested, and pregnant temporalities that make medieval Christian futures possible.

Dr. Pareles’s teaching interests include animal studies, Old and Middle English literature, translation, and Jewish-Christian relations. Ze is a member of the Oecologies collective.
