Lisa Demets (°1991, Wevelgem) studied history at Ghent University where she specialised in medieval history. In May 2019, she defended her Ph.D. thesis on the manuscript variation of the Excellente Cronike van Vlaenderen. In October 2019, she started working as a post-doctoral fellow (FWO) at Ghent University on multilingualism and history writing in late medieval Flanders and Brabant. From April 2020 to March 2022, she is a post-doctoral researcher at Utrecht University on the NWO funded project 'The Multilingual Dynamics of Medieval Flanders' led by prof. Bart Besamusca (more details: https://multilingualdynamics.sites.uu.nl/). She is especially interested in manuscripts and their multilingual reading and writing contexts in the county of Flanders between 1200 and 1500. Her main research interests are gender history, medieval (urban) historiography and chronicle traditions, manuscript studies and the political and cultural history of the medieval Low Countries.
