Dr Helen Moore elected President

Corpus Christi College is delighted to announce that our Acting President Dr Helen Moore has been elected President and will serve for a term of two academic years. Helen will be the first woman to hold this office.  She has been Fellow in English at Corpus since 1996, when she was appointed as the youngest member of its governing body in recent times. Her teaching and research interests are in the medieval and early modern periods; she was lead curator for the ‘Manifold Greatness’ exhibition of 2011 that explored the role of Corpus in the translation of the Authorized Version of the Bible (known also as the King James Bible, 1611). Her current research is a biography of the Jacobean playwright John Webster, author of The Duchess of Malfi among other plays.
