Margaret Finlay receives HSRA
Margaret Finlay, class of 2020, has been awarded an Honours Summer Research Award.
The research is her Honours thesis supervised by Dr. Kevin Whetter. In this thesis Margaret will reexamine queerness in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, looking beyond the Pardoner for instances of homosexuality or what she preliminarily terms the ‘ordinary’ or ‘everyday nature of sexuality in Mediaeval English literature and life’.
Margaret is also Assistant to the Organizers of the Malory at 550 conference, as well as editorial assistant on Whetter and Tolhurst’s in-progress edition of Sir Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur.
