David Green, PhD (University of Nottingham)
Team Leader in British Studies
Dr Green is a graduate of the universities of Exeter (BA) and Nottingham (MA, PhD). Before joining the British Studies team at Harlaxton in 2007 he lived and worked in England, Scotland and Ireland, lecturing at the universities of Sheffield, St Andrews, and Trinity College, Dublin.
My research influences and is influenced by my teaching. It focuses on the later middle ages in Britain, Ireland and France, and deals with themes central to the British Studies course such as kingship, colonialism and concepts of national identity. Much of my published work to date has evolved from my doctoral research on the career and retinue of Edward the Black Prince (c.1330-c.1376). A recent article, an investigation of an intriguing account of Edward’s death in Thomas Walsingham’s Chronica Maiora, took this area of research to its logical conclusion and me into new theoretical territory with a consideration of issues of masculinity, medicine, and chronicle analysis. Recently, I have also begun to extend the chronological and geographical scope of my work. My current research centres on two connected themes, the Hundred Years War, and later Plantagenet ‘colonialism’. This will result in a number of journal and encyclopaedia articles, some now in press, and a book for Yale University Press with the current working title The Hundred Years War: People and Nations. It will examine the impact of the war on a variety of social groups and national institutions.
I regularly speak and chair sessions at the annual meetings of the International Medieval Congress (University of Leeds, U.K.) and the International Conference on Medieval Studies (University of Western Michigan, U.S.A), and I have recently become a member of the Harlaxton Medieval Symposium Steering Committee. I discuss my research further at http://www.medievalists.net/2008/11/14/interview-with-david-green/.
