New member of staff
The School of Welsh welcomes a new member of staff. Dr Rhiannon Marks has been appointed a tutor in the School. She will be teaching on the Sabbatical Scheme for Welsh Language Training―a course designed for teachers, lecturers, instructors and classroom assistants who want to raise the standard of their Welsh and gain confidence in the use of the language. She will also be contributing to a number of undergraduate modules.
Rhiannon hails from Cil-y-Cwm in Carmarthenshire. She graduated from Aberystwyth University before completing a Masters degree in Women’s Studies at Jesus College, Oxford. She returned to Aberystwyth to write a PhD on the work of Menna Elfyn experimenting with the ‘epistoraly criticism’ genre. Rhiannon has an interest in contemporary literature, literary theory and criticism and literary translation, and she enjoys writing creatively in her spare time. She won the crown at the 2007 Urdd Eisteddfod and has recently been appointed joint editor of Tu Chwith magazine.
