Dr Emma NudingLecturer in Early Modern and Medieval Literature
Emma's research interests are cross-period, covering both earlier and later medieval literature, and also their modern reception.
She is currently writing a literary history of St Guthlac of Crowland, covering Old English, Middle English and Anglo-Latin texts, as well as texts by more recent writers such as John Clare, Charles Kingsley, David Jones and Graham Swift. She is interested in how material landscapes affect their literary manifestations, and how the trajectories of literary histories are informed by varied contexts and even more varied readers.
Her next project focuses on the reception of medieval material in the cultural productions of queer women writers (inclusively defined) in the twentieth century, and thus she is interested in queer medievalisms, women's writing and the biases of previous literary histories.
