My areas of expertise and interest include Old and Middle English, Old and Middle French and Anglo-Norman, Old and Middle Irish and Welsh, and Latin languages and literatures. To this may be added manuscript studies and the history of the book, historical and comparative Indo-European linguistics (with a focus on the history of the English language, in particular), and new media and the digital humanities.
More specifically, my research is concerned with the cross-cultural and transnational connections present in medieval Britain and Ireland and how these influenced the literary and material cultures. I am thus invested in the study of multiculturalism and multilingualism in the Middle Ages, medieval reading practices and reception theory, medieval education and didactic literature, religion and literature, and women’s literature.
