Ann Marie Rasmussen

Professor Emerita of Germanic Languages and Literature

joined the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) on January 1, 2015 as the John G. Diefenbaker Memorial Chair in German Literary Studies after having been a faculty member in the Department of Germanic Languages and Literature at Duke University in North Carolina for twenty-five years. I received my BA from the University of Oregon and PhD from Yale  University, both in the field of Germanic Languages and Literatures. Areas of expertise are medieval studies, German studies, and gender studies; author of Mothers and Daughter in Medieval German Literature (1997); and coeditor of Medieval Woman’s Song (with Anne Klinck, 2002); Ladies, Whores, and Holy Women: A Sourcebook in Courtly, Religious, and Urban Cultures of Late Medieval Germany, with Introductory Essays (with Sarah Westphal-Wihl, 2010), and Visuality and Materiality in the Story of Tristan and Isolde (with Jutta Eming and Kathryn Starkey, 2012), as well as numerous essays and forthcoming monograph on medieval badges. My research treats medieval literature and culture from the twelfth century to the Reformation. In my publications I combine gender studies with a variety of other approaches, including manuscript studies, the anthropology of gift-giving, visuality studies, and, most recently, material culture.
