Annette Volfing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Annette Marianne Volfing, FBA (born 5 February 1965) is a literary scholar and academic. Since 2008, she has been Professor of Medieval German Literature at the University of Oxford.


Born on 5 February 1965, Volfing completed her undergraduate degree at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, graduating in 1985; she returned there to carry out her doctoral studies; her DPhil was awarded in 1993 for her thesis "A commentary on Der Meide Kranz by Heinrich von Muegeln". She was elected to a fellowship at Oriel College, Oxford, the following year, alongside a lectureship at the University of Oxford (where she was promoted to reader in 2006 and Professor of Medieval German Literature two years later).[1][2][3]

According to her university profile, Volfing is a "medievalist with particular interest in later medieval religious, mysical, philosophical or allegorical writing";[2] her British Academy adds that her research focuses on "mysticism; allegory; learned discourse (vernacular reception of the artes); didacticism; courtly romance; orientalism; discourses of gender and violence" in medieval German literature.[4]
