Patricia O Connor

I have a BA in History and Archaeology and a Higher Diploma in English Literature from University College Cork. I graduated from the postgraduate Masters course “Texts and Contexts: Medieval to Renaissance Literature” in 2014 and am currently pursuing my research in Old English Literature as a PhD candidate within the Digital Arts and Humanities course offered by University College Cork.

My research topic is a continuation of my Masters research which focused on reconciling the Old English marginalia within a particular manuscript witness of the Old English Bede; Cambridge, Corpus Christi College 41.

I am an active member in both the Anglo-Saxon and School of English communities. In 2015, I was elected to represent Postgraduate students across Ireland and the United Kingdom on the Teachers of Old English in Britain and Ireland (TOEBI) committee.  Within the School of English community in University College Cork , I am also the administrator for both the ‘Texts and Contexts: Medieval to Renaissance Literature MA’ Facebook page and the Social of English Twitter account.

I will be using this blog to actively encourage my interest in Old English and the Digital Humanities and to develop potential research avenues.
