Graeme Ward, Participant
I was born in Scotland in 1986 and received an M.A. and MLitt in History from the University of Glasgow in 2008 and 2010 respectively. For my MLitt dissertation I examined the representation of Waifar of Aquitaine within the text known as the Continuations of the Chronicle of Fredegar. Now as a PhD student at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, I am working on the Histories of Frechulf of Lisieux, with particular focus on Frechulf’s perception of the past, and how his historical imagination was shaped by the cultural and intellectual climate of the ninth century.
I am interested in the function, transmission and reception of historiography in the Carolingian world.
