Blake Gutt

I recently completed a PhD at King’s College, Cambridge, entitled ‘Rhizomes, Parasites, Folds and Trees: Systems of Thought in Medieval French and Catalan Literary Texts’. The dissertation examined a series of conceptual networks and the ways in which they underlie both text and its manuscript presentation. My next project investigates portrayals of gender transition and transformation in medieval French, English and Latin literary texts, in relation to modern transgender theory.
