Johan MacKechnie is a doctoral candidate in the History Department at Queen's University.  She is training to become both a Medieval European and Middle Eastern historian and is working under the supervision of Dr. Adnan Husain.

Johan's doctoral research focuses on examining specific cross-cultural and inter-religious encounters which occurred among the Christians, Jews, and Muslims during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in Valencia, Spain.  Johan is especially interested in more fully exploring convivencia, which examines the ways people of different religious faiths 'lived together' in medieval Spain in the most intimate setting possible – the home environment.


Johan will be teaching the fourth year Islam in World History seminar during the Fall/Winter 2014/2015 semesters and will be co-teaching on the Jewish and World Civilizations until 1492 course with Dr. Howard Adelman in the Winter 2015 semester.
