Associate Professor - Program Chair – Historical Studies


Dr. Bezzina teaches in the areas of Early Modern Europe, the Atlantic World, women and gender, and New France. He works on Protestant-Catholic relations in seventeenth-century France, with a particular focus on the small city of Loudun after the French Wars of Religion. He has published a number of articles in his area and is preparing an article documenting attitudes towards baptism among Loudun's Catholic population as well as a small project on widows in Loudun and the potential for independent female agency in the family household. He is also collaborating with a colleague in France to edit the fascinating register of the life of Loudun's Reformed church in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.​
