Associate Professor, English

I work on Old English, Middle English, Latin, and Anglo-Norman Literature, particularly lesser-known texts sitting at the blurry intersections of historiography, hagiography, and romance. My research focuses on the material and ideological processes of textual composition, transmission, and circulation in medieval England. Paleography, codicology, and philology ground my investigations of translation, redaction, revision, and list-making.
