Profile

Delphine Demelas studied and taught at Aix-Marseille University where she obtained her PhD for research on an edition of La Chanson de Bertrand du Guesclin (14th-15th c), a middle French epic text, using the LaTeX language. She has taught French and medieval literature and conducted research in Paraguay and the USA about French epic texts and codicology. Her publications deal with the evolution of the epic genre during Middle Ages, the use of medieval manuscripts after the Middle Ages, and on manuscripts produced after the Middle Ages as for example the Paraguayan Book of Gold (‘Libro de Oro’). She joined the AND project as Assistant Editor in March 2020 to work on the revision of letter -S. She is currently working on an edition of the Anglo-Norman version of La Chanson d’Otinel (12th-13th c.).
