Anna Wilmore

Stipendiary Lecturer

My thesis is a comparative project exploring late medieval poetry composed about the Virgin Mary in poetic competitions in towns and cities.

I am interested in the way these lyrics reflect the urban spaces in which they were written, and the interplay between the ludic and devotional elements of their performance context.

My research is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Willetts Scholarship at St Anne’s.
