Tekla Bude specializes in medieval literature. Her research focuses on the ways medieval writers were influenced by and influenced the study of music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy -- what medieval scholars would have called the quadrivium and what we might think of as the study of numbers. Her first book, in progress, investigates forms of "silent" or "metaphysical" music in literature from 1300-1550.
Tekla received her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. From 2013-2016, she was Kathleen Hughes Junior Research Fellow at Newnham College, Cambridge, where she began work on a second project on the conceptualization of mathematical principles in medieval poetry, theology, and devotional texts. Her work has appeared in The Chaucer Review and the Yearbook of Langland Studies.
