The AHRC-funded project, ‘Group Identity and the Early Medieval Riddle Tradition’, seeks a Postdoctoral Research Assistant with proficiency in Latin language/translation and a doctoral degree in a related field (such as English, History, Medieval Studies, Classical Studies, etc.). The post-holder will join Principal Investigator Dr Megan Cavell at the University of Birmingham and Co-Investigator Dr Jennifer Neville from Royal Holloway, University of London. The project is focused on the Old English and Latin riddle tradition of early medieval England, as well as its global links and contexts. It explores group identity by examining: networks of riddlers working in England and further afield, performances of identity within the riddles themselves, the ways in which scholarship has replicated the riddle tradition’s policing of group identity, and contemporary engagements with the riddles, specifically in relation to museum/heritage activities and education. We are committed to making this research and the riddles themselves as accessible as possible, and so the development of a website – with riddle texts, translations, commentaries, bibliographies and interactive content – is a crucial part of the project.
