Mae Lyons-Penner

My research interests span the twelfth to fourteenth centuries with occasional forays into the early modern. I am particularly interested in literature as a space of ethical experimentation and (somewhat conversely) as a tool of social formation. In my dissertation, I explore the imagined body politic of thirteenth-century cyclic prose. I am also interested in bringing medieval history and culture to wider audiences. To this end, I manage the Global Medieval Sourcebook.
