Lucy Allen joins English Faculty

s200_lucy.allenIt is a pleasure to welcome Dr Lucy Allen to the English Faculty as a Teaching Associate. Lucy completed her PhD at York University earlier this year, and is very excited to be returning to teach at Cambridge, where she was an undergraduate.

Alongside lecturing and contributing to graduate seminars, Lucy will be continuing work on her current research project which ‘looks at gendered representations of truthfulness in medieval romance’ and preparing for publication parts of her PhD thesis, which focused ‘on religious manuscript cultures in England’. More widely, she is interested ‘in feminist readings of popular fiction’ and regularly writes a thought-provoking blog.
