This week, my guest is the fantastic Dr Kate Ash-Irisarri.
Kate has had an interest in the Middle Ages since childhood, and has been working on medieval literature for over ten years since she began studying it at university. She received a PhD from the University of Manchester for her research on fifteenth and sixteenth-century Anglo-Scottish literary relations. She has taught at the universities of Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool Hope, and is currently an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Manchester.
She is currently writing a book on the use of memory in the formation of national identity in the aftermath of the Scottish Wars of Independence. She is the editor of the Older Scots volume of the Literary Encyclopedia.
I talk to Kate about medieval and early modern literature and, of course, she shares her Apocalypse Books selections with us.
