    About "Norman F. Cantor Michael S. Werthman"

    1. Norman F. Cantor Michael S. Werthman

      Born in Winnipeg, Canada, Cantor received his B.A at the University of Manitoba in 1951 He went on to get his master s degree in 1953 from Princeton University and spent a year as a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford He received his doctorate from Princeton in 1957 under the direction of the eminent medievalist Joseph R Strayer.After teaching at Princeton, Cantor moved to Columbia University from 1960 to 1966 He was a Leff professor at Brandeis University until 1970 and then was at SUNY Binghamton until 1976, when he took a position at University of Illinois at Chicago for two years He then went on to New York University, where he was professor of history, sociology and comparative literature After a brief stint as Fulbright Professor at the Tel Aviv University History Department 1987 88 , he devoted himself to working as a full time writer.Although his early work focused on English religious and intellectual history, Cantor s later scholarly interests were far diverse, and he found success writing for a popular audience than he did engaging in narrowly focused original research He did publish one monograph study, based on his graduate thesis, Church, kingship, and lay investiture in England, 1089 1135, which appeared in 1958 and remains an important contribution to the topic of church state relations in medieval England Throughout his career, however, Cantor preferred to write on the broad contours of Western history, and on the history of academic medieval studies in Europe and North America, in particular the lives and careers of eminent medievalists His books generally received mixed reviews in academic journals, but were often popular bestsellers, buoyed by Cantor s fluid, often colloquial, writing style and his lively critiques of persons and ideas, both past and present Cantor was intellectually conservative and expressed deep skepticism about what he saw as methodological fads, particularly Marxism and postmodernism, but also argued for greater inclusion of women and minorities in traditional historical narratives In both his best selling Inventing the Middle Ages and his autobiography, Inventing Norman Cantor, he reflected on his strained relationship over the years with other historians and with academia in general.Upon retirement in 1999, Cantor moved to Miami, Florida, where he continued to work on several books up to the time of his death.
