Come Muddle with Me!

Welcome to Muddling through the Medieval! This blog is dedicated to my efforts to research and write a dissertation on early medieval English literature, the title of which is currently “Wræclastas: Paths of Redemption in Early Medieval English Literature.” I will post new findings in my manuscript research, pictures of pretty and ugly manuscripts alike (the poor Ormulum), random brainstorms, occasional “Eureka!” outbursts, and general medieval fun.

I believe the title, Muddling through the Medieval, is an apt title because more often than not I find myself taking two steps forward and one step back with each new discovery that I make. Perhaps I am “working” my way through the medieval, but that word neglects the confusion, and often frustration, in which I sometimes find myself. No, this challenge is most definitely an exercise in muddling. I hope you’ll join me!

About carlamthomas

I'm an Assistant Professor of English at Florida Atlantic University, and I earned my PhD from New York University and my BA and MA from Florida State University. It's good to be a Floridian again. My concentration is Early Middle English literature, language, and manuscript culture although this stretches from Old English influences to later Middle English iterations of developments in my period. I'm also an intersectional feminist, trying to inject such theory into some of my newer work as well as my activist work with the Medievalist of Color.
