Dr. Barbara Rosenwein Presents Book

Dr. Barbara Rosenwein invites everyone to attend the inaugural presentation of her book Love: A History in Five Fantasies at Barnes & Noble in Vernon Hills, Illinois, on Friday, August 5th. 

Rosenwein, Professor Emerita at Loyola University Chicago, is a historian of the Middle Ages and emotions.  In Love: A History of Five Fantasies Dr. Rosenwein draws on her expertise in history and emotions to trace the five of the most enduring stories we tell ourselves about love: like-minded union, transcendent rapture, selfless giving, obsessive longing, and insatiable desire.  For a preview, watch this short video produced by Dr. Rosenwein.
