Specializing in late medieval/early modern literature, I also have interdisciplinary expertise in affect theory (after AL Tsing’s, Karen Barad’s, and Donna Haraway ’s updates to Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, and Brian Massumi), and diverse speculative fiction. The affect theory strand of my research has developed into a body of work interfacing nomadic, processual thought with contemporary speculative fiction broadly encompassing gothic, science fiction, dystopic, apocalyptic, and post-apocalyptic texts. The Wycliffite/Lollard strand of my research focuses on the vernacular texts associated with the Wycliffite/Lollard heresy (c.1380-1530). The Wycliffite Repository, an online select concordance generated from an assemblage of 432 Middle English texts, makes my work freely available for consultation.
