About the editorial team:
Valerie B. Johnson is an Associate Professor in the Department of English and Foreign Languages at the University of Montevallo, the liberal arts campus of the University of Alabama system. Her research concerns the late medieval vernacular literature of the British Isles, with a particular focus on ecopolitical imagery. Recently she has begun to investigate the medieval Americas. In addition to her editorial service with The Year’s Work in Medievalism, she is a co-founder and co-managing editor of the open-access and peer-reviewed journal The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies. Recent publications include articles on medievalism and multimodality in first year composition classrooms, romance novels and the Robin Hood canon, and a volume (co-edited) of critical essays on the Robin Hood tradition.
Renée Ward is Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln. Her research concerns the literature and culture of the high to late medieval period, with emphases on monsters/monstrosity in medieval romance and outlaw literature. She has additional interests in modern medievalism. She has published in both areas, and is co-editor of The Arthurian World (Routledge, 2022). Renée has served as Associate Editor for The Year’s Work in Medievalism and currently sits on the advisory committee for the British Branch of the International Arthurian Society. She is also an editorial board member for Brill’s series Explorations in Medieval Culture, and an executive board member for MEARCSTAPA (The Experimental Association for the Research of Cryptozoology through Scholarly Theory and Practical Application).
