From Sept-December this year I will be resident in Oxford, where I am carrying out manuscript research for my NFR project on St. Birgitta's influence in England. For the Michaelmas term of October-December, I will hold a short-term visiting fellowship at Jesus College. For October, I will hold a Sassoon Visiting Fellowship at the Special Collections, Bodleian Library. In addition I will be a discretionary member of the English Faculty for the entire fall.
I will also be speaking about various aspects of my research over the course of the semester. First will be a talk on "What Every Medievalist Should Know about the Virgin Mary" for the University of Bristol Center for Medieval Studies Research Seminar (Thursday 7 October). Then I will speak about Richard Methley's mystical diary and his narrative use of time for the University of Oxford, English Faculty, Medieval English Research Seminar (10 November) and also for the University of St. Andrews, Medieval and Renaissance Group (16 November). The St. Andrews talk will probably be virtual, while the others will be in-person. I hope many can attend one way or another!
