Ingrid Nelson

My interests include the literature of later medieval England (1200-1500), English poetry of all periods, genre theory, lyric theory and poetics, media theory, and cultural studies. I teach courses on Chaucer and other medieval and renaissance literature, and on poetry across the English tradition. A continuing concern with literary and material forms underlies both my scholarship and pedagogy. How does the form of literature – or any text – interact or intersect with the contexts of its cultural practice?
