Medievalists at Warwick is a lively and active community of academic staff and postgraduates, drawn primarily from the English department and the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (French and Italian), which collaborates closely with Renaissance colleagues at the Centre. It has particular research strengths in medieval Francophone literature, including Anglo-Norman and Occitan, English and French hagiography, gender and sexuality in the Middle Ages, Dante's reception, vernacular Aristotle, crusading literature, Langland and manuscript culture, late medieval devotional and mystical writings in Middle English, and vernacular translation.
