My research and teaching centres on medieval and Renaissance literature, and medievalism (in particular, Victorian medievalism). I have published work on language, identity and power in the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, and the reception of Chaucer's work, and broader notions of the medieval, in later historical periods. I have further interests in the relationship between literature and cultural heritage and conservation.
I am interested in supervising work on: medieval literature and language, Geoffrey Chaucer, Chaucerian reception, medievalism studies (particularly nineteenth-century medievalism).
