Dr. Cameron SuttDr. Cameron Sutt

Professor and Chair

Cameron Sutt is a historian of the Middle Ages with a focus on Hungary during the Árpád dynasty (1000-1300). He is particularly interested in Hungarian society. His book, Slavery in Árpád-era Hungary in a Comparative Context, for example, looks at the evidence for widespread agricultural slavery in the Hungarian kingdom during the period. Most recently, he has published on the sexual use of slaves in both Christian and Muslim communities in the kingdom. Other areas of research have been inheritance practices of the Hungarian elite as well as their land-use strategies and the organization of their estates.
Cameron teaches courses covering the medieval period in both the Latin West and the Islamic world.
