The Brook Lecture honours the memory of G.L. Brook, Professor of English Language and Medieval English Literature at Manchester University, 1945–77. We are pleased to welcome as this year’s speaker Patricia Ingham, Professor of English and Medieval Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington and an editor of Exemplaria. She is the author, most recently, of The Medieval New: Ambivalence in an Age of Innovation (Penn, 2015), a study of newness and novelty in literary, scientific, and religious discourses of the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries which analyses the ethical ambivalence with which medieval thinkers approached the category of the new.
