College Teaching Associate
SpecialisationMedieval and Early Modern Literature
Research interestsI teach papers in the English Tripos from Medieval Literature to Shakespeare and Practical Criticism. I am interested in the idea of 'writing history', and the interface between history, politics and literature more widely in the medieval and early modern period. My first book was The Hundred Years War in Literature, 1337-1600 (Cambridge, 2016), and with art historian Laura Slater I co-edited Representing War and Violence, 1250-1600 (Cambridge, 2016). I am the editor of John Page's The Siege of Rouen for Middle English Texts (Heidelberg, 2015). I'm currently working on a book about the development of eyewitness writing as a genre.
