Biography

Dr Anne M. Scott was, from 2006-2010, Convenor of the Australian Research Council Network for Early European Research, and is currently an honorary research fellow in the Discipline of English and Cultural Studies at the University of Western Australia. As former Network Convenor she continues to bring together researchers, particularly working to consolidate links between researchers of European medieval and renaissance studies in Taiwan and Australia, helping to develop inter-institutional and interdisciplinary research collaboration. Her own field of research is in fourteenth-century English Literature, and her monograph entitled ‘Piers Plowman and the poor’, Dublin: Four Courts Press, was published in 2004. She has published several essays on fourteenth- and fifteenth-century English literature, and work is currently in progress for a book on the place of Robert Mannyng's 'Handlyng Synne' in the development of late medieval English literature and art. She is Editor of Parergon, the journal of the Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, available in print and online as part of Project MUSE database and several other databases.
