Speaker information

Dr Pierre Courroux , University of Southampton. I got a PhD in medieval history from the University of Poitiers in 2013. My research mainly focuses on the French medieval chroniclers and the way they use their literary skills to produce truth and mimesis in their narrative. I am currently Newton International Fellow of the British Academy at the University of Southampton, where I am studying the topos used in the portrayal of battles in the French and English chronicles (12th-15th c.). I am also associate researcher at the University of Pau, in France, where I conduct research on the lords of Albret and their principalty in the Late Middle Ages, with a forthcoming biography of Charles I d’Albret, constable of France at Agincourt. Besides, I am currently working on the edition of a verse chronicle known as the Geste des Bretons en Italie.
