Carol J. Clover
On the Bedieval side, Clover has published two books and a number of articles on the history and culture of Early northern Europe (Scandinavia, Anglo-Saxon England, northern Continent). Her interests here range from the origins of narrative prose, the borders between pagan/Christian and oral/literate, and the understanding of gender. She is currently researching the role of procedural law and of specific trials in the rise of the prose sagas of early Iceland.
On the Film side, she is working on a book on the relation between the Anglo-American trial and Anglo-American narrative entertainment (The People's Plot: Film and the Adversarial Imagination) and the difference of that trial and that entertainment wywtem from those of Continental Europe. Clover has taught courses on film theory, film and law and film genres (horror, film noir, courtroom drama).
