Professor Daniel Wakelin primarily teaches manuscript studies for the MSt course in English Language and Literature 650-1550. His research focuses on the material remains of English literature between the fourteenth and early sixteenth centuries: manuscripts, and some printed books, and what they reveal about writing habits and reading habits. Within this field, his special interests are scribal corrections, errors and accuracy; marginalia and other ‘genres’ of writing by, for or about readers; humanist reading and scholarship; manuscripts of carols; fifteenth- and sixteenth-century courtly poetry and interludes. His current research includes a study of correcting in Middle English manuscripts and an edition of William Worcester’s The Boke of Noblesse.
