Mami’s research project for PhD thesis, titled ‘The Veneration of the Anglo-Saxon and British Female Saints in the South English Legendaries’, examines the legends of five Anglo-Saxon and Welsh abbesses in one of the most significant hagiographical collections in Middle English, the South English Legendaries. With focus on their fourteenth and fifteenth century manuscripts, the aim of her study is to shed light on the construction of locality, gender, and history in late medieval England.
