Dr Marianne Ailes


Before coming to Bristol as a lecturer in 2007 I was for a number of years a part-time College lecturer at Wadham College, Oxford. A graduate of Edinburgh University with a degree in French with English, I initially moved to England for the one year MA in Medieval Studies at Reading University, staying there for my PhD on the French and English verse texts of the Fierabras legend, under the supervision of Professor Wolfgang van Emden. My period of specialism allows me enjoy the richness of French at a period of great felixibility and rapid change in the language while as a literary scholar I take an interdisciplinary approach with a strong sense of historical context and awareness of manuscript tradition.
