Research Interests and PhD Supervision
I research late medieval, especially 15th century, English literature and culture. I am interested in questions of sexuality, gender, subjectivity and devotional practice; the intersections of literary, visual and material culture; the contemporary medieval.
I am currently working on articles on race and gender in Middle English literature; on the Mandeville-persona in text, image and the material world; on Margery Kempe as performance artist and archivist; on Lydgate’s Mummings as Trojan re-enactment. I am planning a study of late medieval performance.
I am co-director of King's College London's Centre for Late Antique and Medieval Studies with Lawrence Warner. With Simon Trafford and Claire Pascolini-Campbell I am co-convenor of the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Medievalism and the 2020 Middle Ages in the Modern World conference. With Josh Davies I am helping to convene workshops on Architectural Narratives for the Temporal Communities network.
I have supervised or co-supervised 13 now completed PhDs and currently co-supervise a further 7. I would welcome applications for research supervision in any relevant topics of late medieval and contemporary medieval culture.
