Dr Hervin Fernandez Aceves

AHRC Postdoctoral Research Associate

Research Overview

My research interests lie in the intersection of relational sociology, Mediterranean history and medieval studies. I have refined new methodologies based on prosopography, diplomatics and digital humanities. My forthcoming monograph draws on my doctoral research to illustrate and reassess the often overlooked role of the Italo-Norman upper aristocracy, where I explain the shifting composition of the nobility in southern Italy and offer a new understanding of how territorial leaderships operated under the Sicilian kingdom. I am currently working on medieval Sardinia's society and its autochthonous textual practices.
