Jacqueline Fay (Stodnick), Ph.D.
I am an Associate Professor of English at the University of Texas at Arlington specializing in Anglo-Saxon literature and culture. After receiving both my B.A. and M.Phil degrees from the University of Manchester in the U.K., where I am originally from, I moved to the U.S. and graduated in 2003 with a Ph.D. in English from the University of Notre Dame. I am the author of a number of articles on the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, saints' lives, and documentary lists, among other topics, and am also co-editor of A Handbook of Anglo-Saxon Studies, published in 2012 by Blackwell. I am currently finishing a book under contract with Oxford University Press entitled Englishness and the Body in Early Cultural Texts, which examines Englishness in Anglo-Saxon England as a specifically embodied identity. My recent work concentrates on the relationship of the human and non-human in Anglo-Saxon England, in particular re-reading texts in relation to plant and animal ecology.
