Anna Wilmore MA MSt (Oxon.)


I recently submitted my DPhil thesis, which is a comparative project exploring late medieval poetry composed about the Virgin Mary in poetic competitions in towns and cities. I am interested in the way these lyrics reflect the urban spaces in which they were written, and the interplay between the ludic and devotional elements of their performance context. 

I am currently Stipendiary Lecturer in German at Somerville College, where I teach translation for all year groups and the Prelims literature course as well as acting as Organising and Personal Tutor. 

I enjoy doing outreach work and have offered several taster sessions for St Anne’s for students interested in languages and medieval studies.

My research is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Willetts Scholarship at St Anne’s.
