Amy W. Clark

Amy W. Clark received her Ph.D. in English and Medieval Studies from the University of California, Berkeley in 2020. Her first book project, “Familiar Distances: Beating the Bounds of Early English Identity,” argues that Old English texts write selfhood as dynamic, relational, and unstable—and that the formal solution to this instability, in genres ranging from charters to riddles to religious poetry, lies in reiterating key relationships that define an individual.
