About the curator

Nicholas Perkins teaches medieval English literature at St Hugh’s College, University of Oxford. He has written about books and their readers ranging from the early Anglo-Saxon period to the late Middle Ages. He has also studied how modern writers and artists have responded to the medieval past in their own work. At the moment he is particularly interested in how exchanges of gifts and other objects are used in medieval romance narratives.
