Education and Experience

Born in Glasgow, Marilyn Corrie was an undergraduate at the University of Glasgow, where she received an MA in English and French. She did her doctorate at Oxford, where she held a Carnegie Scholarship; she was also a Snell Exhibitioner at Balliol College. She was Darby Fellow and Tutor in English at Lincoln College, Oxford from 1992 to 1997; during this time she also held a fellowship at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. Marilyn Corrie has taught in the English Department at UCL since 1997.


Marilyn Corrie’s doctorate and first publications focused on the trilingual manuscript culture of England in the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. More recently, she has been working on English literature from the later part of the medieval period. She is currently completing a book on Sir Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur. She would particularly welcome applications from prospective PhD students interested in the literature and literary culture of England in the early and the late medieval periods, and from students interested in medieval French (including Anglo-Norman) as well as medieval English literature. Marilyn Corrie has recently edited A Concise Companion to Middle English Literature (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009); she has also published on the history of the English language in the Middle English period.
