Vicki is a final year PhD student of English Literature in the School of Languages, Literatures, Linguistics and Media. She is researching the appropriation of mercantile practice and discourse in medieval and early modern women's writing, including their letters, memoirs and wills. Vicki is particularly interested in pre-modern women's involvement in business and finance: how much did they spend and on what? What did they invest in? What did they sell? What did they bequeath, and to whom and why? How did pre-modern women writers utilise fiscal discourse to represent various aspects of their lives? Vicki completed both her BA in English Literature and MA in Medieval and Early Modern Literature at Bangor University. She was awarded the John F. Danby Prize in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, and the Dr. John Robert Jones Prize in 2012.
Vicki is a seminar tutor for the current English Literature undergraduate module 'Landmarks in Literature', and previously taught the first year 'Literature of Laughter' module.
