Profile
Amanda Bohne’s research focuses primarily on late Middle English literature. Her MA thesis, Female Networks of Agency in Middle English Popular Romance, explored the social networks used by women in three late Middle English romances to accomplish their goals. Her PhD dissertation, currently in progress, discusses depictions of the network of responsibility between the deceased and their communities in medieval English narratives. Amanda’s background in medieval studies allows her to situate recent multimedia culture in the context of a longer continuum of evolving media and messages.
