Dr. Eichbauer serves as the Interim Director of the Office of Scholarly Innovation & Student Scholarship and is a Professor of Medieval History with a research specialization in legal history.
Her research specializes in legal and ecclesiastical history from c.1000 to c.1500, and focuses, in particular, on legal pluralism and the evolution of legal principles. She is particularly interested in the dissemination of legal knowledge; the interpretation of law; and the ways in which social, political, and intellectual developments and trends shaped both during the height of the medieval period. By examining the larger processes linking law to the world in which it functions, my hope is to show new ways of thinking about current issues. She has published articles in legal history journals and has published works with Cambridge University Press, Routledge, Brill, and Ashgate. She was also a fellow for the American Council of Learned Societies from 2016 to 2018.
