Professor Lyndal Roper (PhD, F RHist S, FAHA, FBA)

I did my undergraduate degree in History with Philosophy at the University of Melbourne, and from there I went to study in Germany at the University of Tubingen before moving to the University of London (King's College) where I completed my doctorate. I worked at Royal Holloway, University of London and then moved to Balliol College, Oxford, where I was Fellow and Tutor in History. I'm now at Oriel College. I am the first woman to hold the Regius Chair in History, and so far as I know, the first Australian. I've worked on the history of witchcraft and am now writing a biography of the German reformer Martin Luther. I am happy to supervise graduate students in the area of early modern German history, the history of witchcraft, gender history, history of the body, sexuality, or indeed any topic within the cultural history of the early modern period.
