Medieval English Literature
I am a New Haven-based student of medieval English literature and culture, and will be a 2017-18 Junior Research Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London. I am currently working on a book project on the rhetoric of the sciences and vernacular literary culture in late-medieval England. I am also interested in manuscript studies and medievalism in the Americas. I earned a Ph. D. in English from Yale University in spring 2017.
Medieval English literature, anthropology, psychology, Shakespeare and screen writing.
I have published books, essays and articles on Old English heroic poetry, especially BEOWULF, on aesthetics, on Chaucer and on various works in the early modern, Romantic and Victorian periods. I teach undergraduates primarily and value a broad engagement with the run of English language and literature.
