Ryan Randle

Ph.D. Student


Ryan is a second-year Ph.D. Student in the Medieval Studies Program. Her research centers around the reception of Classical Latin texts in the Middle Ages with a particular interest in the depiction of trauma, interpersonal violence, and the construction of gender identity and paradigms of sexuality within poetry. During her undergraduate career at Texas A&M University, she completed a research thesis that focused on the tenuous and fluid nature of female agency in Middle English and Middle Scots adaptations of the Dido myth. Her current projects include a conference presentation titled “Gender Performance and the Rhetorical Classroom: Reading Dido’s Speech in Chaucer’s House of Fame” which will be presented in the Spring at the 57th International Congress on Medieval Studies.
