Jeremy Griffiths Professor of Medieval English Palaeography
St Hilda's College
I am the Jeremy Griffiths Professor of Medieval English Palaeography. I am interested in the history of reading and history of writing practices, throughout the medieval and Tudor periods, but especially in the years between 1200 and 1600; I am also interested in humanism’s influence on English literature. I am the author of Humanism, Reading and English Literature 1430-1530 (2007), Scribal Correction and Literary Craft: English Manuscripts 1375-1510 (2014) and Designing English: Early Literature on the Page (2017).
