- Joanna Bellis, The Hundred Years War in Literature, 1337-1600 (Cambridge: Boydell and Brewer, 2016). Reviewers called it ‘impressive’, ‘clear and persuasive’, at points ‘spectacular’, ‘bridging the divides between the medieval and the early modern periods and between historical and literary studies’ (Denise N. Baker, Journal of British Studies, 2017); ‘ambitious’, ‘meticulous’, thoroughly illuminating’ (Elizaveta Strakhov, The Medieval Review, 2016).
- Joanna Bellis and Laura Slater, ed. Representing War and Violence, 1250–1600 (Cambridge: Boydell and Brewer, 2016). Contributors include Richard W. Kaeuper, Christina Normore, Andrew Lynch, Anne Baden-Daintree, Sara V. Torres, Anne Curry, David Grummitt and Matthew Woodcock; the articles span literary studies, history and art history.
- John Page, The Siege of Rouen, ed. Joanna Bellis, Middle English Texts 51 (Heidelberg: Universitätsverlag Winter, 2015). Reviewers called this edition ‘superbe’ (Laurent Vissière, Le Moyen Age, 2015), ‘exemplary’ (Chris
Given-Wilson, The Medieval Chronicle, 2015), ‘inspir[ing] confidence’ (Eric Stanley, Notes & Queries, 2015). Given-Wilson commented, ‘This will surely remain the definitive edition of The Siege of Rouen for a long time’.
Future book projects:
- A monograph about the development of eyewitness writing as a genre across the medieval and early modern period;
- A student anthology of accounts of the Hundred Years War, from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century chronicles, correspondence and war poetry, to sixteenth-century polemics, treatises and history plays.
