Professional Statement

Anne Middleton's research interests include pre-modern literary history, vernacular poetics, and the later-medieval literary uses of Latin academic discourses.  Her publications, chiefly on the works of Chaucer and Langland, have examined authorial self-representation, accounts of literary production as social and individual cultural goods, and the formation of literary careers among those employed in ecclesiastical and royal writing offices. Her current work includes a study of the literary cultures of the reign of Edward III, and a commentary on Piers Plowman. 

She has held fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities (for group as well as individual research), and a UC President's Fellowship.  She was awarded the Berkeley Citation at her retirement in 2006.
