Brief Bio

Lindy Brady specializes in Old English, medieval Irish and Welsh, Old Norse, and Anglo-Latin languages and literatures. Her research interests include multilingual and transcultural approaches to the Middle Ages, the role of the landscape in literature, and representations of identity in medieval texts. Her first book, Writing the Welsh borderlands in Anglo- Saxon England, was published by Manchester University Press (2017), and her current book project is entitled Framing History in the British Isles: The Origin Legends of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Other ongoing projects include a collection, Origin Legends in Medieval Europe, co- edited with Patrick Wadden for Brill's Reading Medieval Sources series, and a series of editions and translations of late-medieval alchemical texts co- edited with Andrew Rabin. Lindy has been a Text Technologies Fellow at Stanford University in June 2015, the A. W.
