MemberAnna Dorofeeva

I’m the ZKS Barker Junior Research Fellow at Durham University. My research interests span the cultural and intellectual history of the early and high Middle Ages, with a particular focus on book history. My most recent research output has focused on the Physiologus and on the codicology of miscellany manuscripts. I’m currently working on secret writing and cryptography in Durham Priory Library manuscripts from the ninth to the sixteenth centuries, examining community identity, the social experience of secrecy, and the boundary between graphic symbol and written word.
