Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Marcus Bull’s research focuses on the narratology of historical texts from the central medieval period to the sixteenth century, an interest that informs his most recent book: Eyewitness and Crusade Narrative: Perception and Narration in Accounts of the Second, Third and Fourth Crusades (Boydell and Brewer, 2018). He is currently engaged in two book projects: a study of the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, with particular reference to the ways in which its representations in word and image sought to capture what participants were believed to have experienced in person; and an exploration of experience, memory, the play of social scripts and self-construction in the memoirs of Pierre de Bourdeille, better known as Brantôme.
