Dr Christine Rauer

Education and Experience

Having received her MA from Leeds and her PhD from Emmanuel College, Cambridge (Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic), Christine Rauer held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and taught at the University of Birmingham, before joining the staff at St Andrews.

Research Interests

Christine Rauer is interested in Old English language and literature, insular Latin literature, hagiography, and the literary history of Anglo-Saxon England (particularly ninth-century literature, the Old English Martyrology and Beowulf). Her current projects include a monograph on source references made by Old English and Anglo-Latin authors, and a survey of lost Anglo-Saxon hagiography. She would welcome further applications from postgraduates interested in any of her research areas.
