Originally from Syracuse, New York, Dr. Bulman grew up in Wisconsin and Michigan. She holds a Ph.D. in medieval History from Michigan State University. Her research interests draw on ecclesiastical court records from the medieval French diocese of Mende, France which she uses to explore topics of cultural history. Her first book, Recollecting the Past explores the manipulation of episcopal court records to support episcopal secular lordship in the diocese of Mende in response to the expansion of royal sovereignty in the diocese of Mende. Her forthcoming book, titled Witnesses to Sorcery: Magic, Terror, and Politics in Fourteenth-Century Languedoc, investigates the socio-political context of the practice and prosecution of ritual magic by the dominant fourteenth-century political and religious authorities.
