Bio

Virginia Langum is a Pro Futura Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study at Uppsala University and associate professor in English literature at Umeå University. She is also a member of Sweden's Young Academy. Her research concerns premodern literature and culture, particularly the connections between the body and religious experience, as well as medicine and ethics, extending from the Middle Ages to our own period. She is also part of the Umeå Group for Premodern Studies and the Umeå Network for Medical Humanities. She teaches academic writing, literary theory and methods, medieval literature, as well "Blaming the Body: Ethics, Medicine and Culture in Western Europe" and "Narrating Madness in Literature and Culture." Before she moved to Sweden, she completed her PhD in English at the University of Cambridge where her dissertation traced the concept of discretion in medieval England. She also has a master's degree in Medieval and Renaissance Literature also from Cambridge, a master's degree in journalism from Columbia, and a bachelor's degree in English from Trinity College, Dublin. She welcomes PhD proposals in the areas of medieval literature; literature and the body; medical humanities; historicism; historical fiction.
