Medieval romance, narratology, films...and the internet!


I occasionally tweet about medieval things.


I’m currently a lecturer at Clemson University–you can find my faculty page here.


Sometimes I find useful things on the internet. If you’re interested in medieval studies or narratology, perhaps you’ll find them useful, too!


Hello there! My name is Caitlin G. Watt, and I’m a lecturer at Clemson University in Clemson, SC. I specialize in medieval literature, in particular 12th-14th-century French and English romances and other literature from this period in French, Latin, and English. My research focuses on characters and techniques of characterization, gender, and sexuality, but I’ve also taught courses on world literature, speculative fiction, and more. For more information about my teaching, research, or presentations, you’re in the right place!
