Research Interests and PhD supervision

My research interest is in medieval English literary culture: within that, I am particularly concerned with questions of sexuality, gender and subjectivity; intersections of literature, practice and the visual arts; East Anglian culture; medievalisms.

I am currently writing a study of representations of paganity in fifteenth-century writing and art and co-editing a collection of essays on Locating the Middle Ages with Professor Julian Weiss. I would welcome applications for research supervision in any relevant areas.

For more details, please see my full research profile.
