I teach and study the entire Medieval and Early Renaissance periods, but I specialize in Early Medieval Literature with a focus in Anglo-Saxon England, medieval manuscripts, and just a little Late Antiquity for good measure. My areas of interest for teaching and research purposes include (but often wander outside of: Anglo-Saxon codicology; Anglo-Saxon language and literature; memory studies; LA/medieval cultural geography, cosmography, and travel narratives; LA, medieval, and Early Modern ethnography and exploration; early Latin saint’s lives; Latin texts in English translation; monsters and teratology; Chaucerian dream poems; Renaissance poetry; and Ancient to modern drama. My current research interests include the textual and codicological history of the Beowulf-Manuscript (London, BL Cotton Vitellius A.xv, part 2), the earliest Latin St. Christopher legend, and the OE and Latin versions of Orosius’ History against the Pagans.
