Dr Mary Swan

Mary's main research focus is textual transmission from the tenth to twelfth centuries. She is working on Making Ælfric's Audience, a book which will explore how the works of this late Anglo-Saxon ecclesiastical writer seek to produce a particular kind of reading subject, and also on an edition of Lambeth Palace 487, one of the manuscripts to be studied by the Project. She has published on a range of topics related to textual culture, including concepts of authorship, homiletic prose, and traditions of Veronica, and on later medieval English women mystics. Mary is Second Vice-President of the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists and a member of the Committee of the Association of Teachers of Old English in Britain and Ireland. She is particularly interested in fostering interdisciplinary Medieval Studies.
