Tom Pettitt

Tom Pettitt is a Research Professor affiliated with the University of Southern Denmark’s Centre for Medieval Literature and Cultural Sciences Institute. Designed ultimately to elucidate the vernacular cultures of medieval Europe, his research encompasses oral traditions such as customs, ballads, wondertales, and legends, as well as folk aspects in the work of Renaissance dramatists. He has also contributed to exploring the notion of a “Gutenberg Parenthesis,” which suggests (in line with the work of John Miles Foley) a compatibility between digital and pre-print cultures.
