Prof. Margaret Sanders

Lecturer in English

At NCSU Meg developed both a love for teaching freshmen and a fascination with medieval literature. Combining these loves whenever possible, Meg is also the executive director of a medieval immersive event in South Carolina. When she isn’t redoing her syllabus or researching 12th century knightly sigils, Meg enjoys spending time with her husband and young son.
