Dr Amy Louise Morgan

University of Surrey

Dr Amy Louise Morgan began working as a Lecturer in Medieval Literature at the University of Surrey in October 2017, after completing her PhD at the University of Surrey earlier that year. Amy's doctoral studentship, awarded by the University of Surrey, supported her research on queer time and space in medieval romance and the lays. In this study she analysed Bisclavret, Lanval, Sir Orfeo, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and The Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale. Amy specialises in medieval literature, queer theory, and gender theory with a particular focus on queer time, space, and identity. Her publications include an article on queerness in Sir Orfeo; an article on Marie de France, alienation and Lanval; and a book chapter on orchards as queer loci in Lanval and Sir Orfeo. She is currently writing a monograph on queer time and space in medieval romance. In addition, Amy is working on two new projects. The first examines female space as queer space in Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte Darthur. The second focuses on gender, time, and space in Disney's medievalism.
