I am a New York-based professor and museum guide with a PhD in medieval history, and it is my lifelong mission to share the wonderful world of the Middle Ages with anyone who will listen--especially over a glass of rosé!  From illuminated manuscripts to heresy trials to banquet cuisine, each week in History Happy Hour I love touring through medieval culture and sharing it with you!

Christine was a fountain of knowledge & very enthusiastic about sharing it. It was my fault for not reading the name of the course carefully enough as I had no personal interest in it & expected it to be something else. But I will definitely sign up for a variety of Christine's Happy Hours in the coming weeks as I've become a Medieval fanatic. My one real negative: Christine, please slow down !! You talked so quickly that, although I practically had my head on the screen, I found your comments regretfully hard to follow.

I am always entertained and informed. History isn’t always as we think or have been taught. This is a very interesting dive into what we think and what is real.

History Happy Hour is one of the highlights of my week! The presentations are always full of interesting tidbits plus a more global picture of the time and even of the way historians do their work. The presenter is truly up on her area, and she is funny and very encouraging of comments and questions. I recommend it –even if you never thought you’d want to know about the Middle Ages.

Class is informative & interesting. However, Personal should be kept out of discussion, history needs to be told impartially & without biases.

This is my second time participating in the History Happy Hour with Dr. Christine Axen and both have been stellar. Great topics, great presentations (she is very passionate about her work and it shows), and just great fun. I will look forward to attending more in the future!
