Shannon Cunningham studied Latin 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 in 2011 and joined AUP’s European History team in 2014. Shannon is acquisitions editor for three series on the European History list at AUP — Crossing Boundaries, Hagiography beyond Tradition, and Knowledge Communities — which all share an ethos of publishing cutting-edge and contextually precise scholarship. 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. She also brings her expertise to the Asian Studies list, acting as the commissioning editor for the US and Canada. Beyond her work in publishing, she is a registered yoga teacher and craft coffee connoisseur based in sunny Milwaukee (WI).
