Chaucer, Gower, Hoccleve; late medieval religious literature and culture
Robyn A. Bartlett (formerly Malo; PhD, Ohio State University, 2007) joined the department of English at Purdue in 2008 and is associate professor of Middle English Literature. She works on Chaucer, Hoccleve, and late medieval religious literature and culture. Her first book, Relics and Writing in Late Medieval England was published by the University of Toronto Press in 2013 (paperback 2014): http://www.utppublishing.com/Relics-and-Writing-in-Late-Medieval-England.html. Her essays have appeared or are forthcoming in The Chaucer Review, Studies in the Age of Chaucer, New Medieval Literatures, and the Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, among other places. Her current projects include a book-length study of medieval vernacular confession, and her interests extend to include the role of mindfulness in classroom teaching.
Professor Bartlett regularly teaches undergraduate courses on literary studies and literary theory, and graduate and undergraduate courses on Chaucer, late medieval literature, and Middle English language.
