Hello and welcome to the Naked Philologist! (Like the Naked Chef, but with more grammar jokes and less chance of embarrassing burns…)
A new and improved introduction to Highly: I’m currently an MPhil student in Medieval Studies at the University of Sydney. Much to my surprise, I’m now doing exactly what I came to university six years ago to do: working on Arthurian romances: after a passionate love affair with Old English, I’ve landed up in the confusing but exciting world of Old French, where I’m writing about women’s friendship in the romances of Chrétien de Troyes. I’m taking Latin classes, striving to fix up my patchy background in gender and queer theory, and wondering what happened to my academic writing mojo. I’m also teaching a couple of hours per week as a tutor, which is a new and exciting adventure.
