Anne Lister Anne Lister PhD update (18) Anne Lister PhD update 30 Mar 19

Just to let Mudcatters who don't follow my Facebook posts know - my PhD thesis was accepted this week. The title is "The medieval romance of Jaufre - a storyteller's perspective". The content includes a detailed examination of the manuscripts and a discussion of the circumstances in which it was probably created and performed, consideration of evidence for it being orally derived or transmitted, a comparison of some of the motifs and themes within the story which make it such a fascinating story and finally an account of my telling the story (in English) to a variety of audiences and their reactions to it.
It will in due course be uploaded to ORCA (open access) but the copyright is held by the university. I'm considering whether and how to turn it into a book, and will be writing an adaptation of the story for a non-academic readership. If any 'Catters would like to know more, message me here or via FB.
In the meantime, I'm happy to be called "The Doctor" and will be acquiring a suitable sonic screwdriver. Available for storytelling and singing and workshops, too.
