Jamie Taylor

JTaylor Jamie Taylor's (Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania) main teaching and research interests focus on the literature and culture of fourteenth- and fifteenth-century England, though her work moves across fields and periods, including ancient, medieval and contemporary literary theory and early modern travel literature. She is particularly interested in medieval legal procedure, models of community, and Lollardy.   Her current book project, Fictions of Evidence:   Witness Testimony and Late Medieval Literature , explores the use of legal and theological models of testimony in works by Langland, Chaucer, William Thorpe and Margery Kempe. Related work examines the relationship between England and the Continent (particularly Spain) in the Middle Ages. Read about Jamie at  Bryn Mawr Now
