About Robert Rouse
After completing doctoral work at the University of Bristol, Professor Rouse joined the Department of English at the University of British Columbia in 2005, being promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2007. He teaches Medieval Literature at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, supervise undergraduate theses and graduate dissertations, and has served as Chair of the Faculty of Arts Committee for Medieval Studies (2008-10) and most recently as the Chair of the Department of English Majors Committee (2009-11).
His own research has been primarily concerned with medieval romance (both Arthurian and non-Arthurian), writing on issues of historiography (in particular post-conquest perceptions of the Anglo-Saxon Past), English national identity, saracens and other medieval others, the law, the medieval erotic, and – most recently – the medieval geographical imagination.
He has published two books and numerous articles on medieval romance and culture. His books are The Idea of Anglo-Saxon England in Middle English Romance, Studies in Medieval Romance (Cambridge: D. S. Brewer, 2005) and The Medieval Quest for Arthur, Rouse, Robert and Cory Rushton (Stroud, UK: Tempus, 2005).
