Dr Helen Birkett


I teach on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, but the following are most closely related to my research interests:

  • HIH2182A The Re-Birth of Europe? Renaissance and Renewal in the Long Twelfth Century
  • HIH3110/1 The Celtic Frontier: Post Conquest England and her Celtic Neighbours
  • HISM019 Critical Approaches in Medieval Research: Saints, Shrines and Miracles in Medieval Europe

I try to make use of local archival resources in my teaching wherever possible, and have held manuscripts sessions for both undergraduate and postgraduate students at the Exeter Cathedral Library and University of Exeter Special Collections.
