Research

Research Overview

I specialise in late medieval and early modern literature, with interests in memory, the history of emotions and sexuality, queer theory, medievalism, and Scottish literature. My ongoing interests in life-writing and literary reception are reflected in my book Remembering Boethius: Writing Aristocratic Identity in Late-Medieval French and English Literatures, which explores the role of the Consolation of Philosophy in mediating personal experiences of exile and imprisonment for medieval subjects. Recent and forthcoming publications include articles on responses to Arthurian myth in Young Adult fiction, distributed cognition as a lens for reading late medieval Scottish literature, and the political function of emotion in Robert Henryson's Testament of Cresseid. I welcome enquiries from students working in related areas.
