Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Marcus Bull’s current research interests focus on the narratology of historical texts from the central medieval period, with particular reference to the Latin narratives of the First Crusade. His edition of the Gesta Francorum et aliorum Hierosolimitanorum will appear in the Oxford Medieval Texts series; and he is also co-producing, with Damien Kempf, a new edition of Robert the Monk’sHistoria Iherosolimitana. Professor Bull is also interested in the reception of the pre-modern past in the modern era: he has recently co-edited, with Tania String, a volume entitled Tudorism: Historical Imagination and the Appropriation of the Sixteenth Century (2011).
