Corinne Clark completed her Masters in English (650-1550) at the University of Oxford, where she studied at Merton College, and she received her undergraduate degree in English from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Corinne possesses a professional background in digital publishing and administrative research support, and she has worked with archives and academics across the UK and North America.


Corinne’s research interests range from hagiography and disability theory to scribal transmission and romance. She is particularly interested in exploring medieval literary approaches to the body and the intersection between medicine, emotion, and religious practice. Her thesis investigates early Middle English devotional literature and global medieval approaches to physiology and cognition, with a focus on the thirteenth-century Wooing Group. She has upcoming publications in the Journal of the Early Book Society, Nottingham Medieval Studies and Oxford Research in English. Her work on scribal variation in the manuscripts of Thomas of Erceldoune was shortlisted for the Medium Ævum essay prize.
