Jaclyn Rajsic completed her D.Phil. in English at the¬†University¬†of Oxford in January 2013. Her thesis examined the ideological role and re-shaping of mythical British history in short chronicles and genealogies of England’s kings written in Anglo-Norman, Latin and English from the twelfth to the fifteenth century.

This talk will focus on the clashes between Galfridian and Bedan chronologies, and how the authors of some of these rolls try to resolve those incompatibilities. There will also be some discussion about materiality and the importance of the roll format for these short narratives.

This talk is part of the Magdalene Society of Medievalists series.
