Mae Velloso-Lyons

I am a medievalist working at the intersection of literary analysis, cultural history, and social theory. My dissertation examines the heroic body as constructed in the thirteenth-century Arthurian Vulgate Cycle, one of the most widely disseminated works of that century. I also work on the computational analysis of medieval texts and am currently a scholar at Stanford's Data Science Institute.
Beyond my research, I am passionate about making our global medieval heritage more accessible to contemporary audiences. To this end, I co-edit the Global Medieval Sourcebook alongside Professor Kathryn Starkey (German Studies). Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a submission.
