My interests include the literature of later medieval England (1200-1500), English poetry of all periods, genre theory, lyric theory and poetics, medievalism, the history of the book, media theory, and cultural studies. I teach courses on Chaucer and other medieval and renaissance literature, and on poetry across the English tradition. A continuing concern with literary and material forms underlies both my scholarship and pedagogy. How does the form of literature--or any text--interact or intersect with the contexts of its cultural practice? My first monograph, Lyric Tactics: Poetry, Genre and Practice in Later Medieval England (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017) defines the medieval English lyric genre based on its practices rather than its poetic forms. My current project, tentatively titled Premodern Media and the Canterbury Tales, explores the social, legal, and perceptual contexts of medieval ideas of media, and draws on these to read Chaucer's Canterbury Tales as a work concerned with the literary value of mediation. My peer-reviewed essays on the manuscript contexts of English literature and on medieval concepts of media have appeared in the Journal of English and Germanic Philology and Exemplaria. With Shannon Gayk (IU-Bloomington), I have co-edited a special issue of Exemplaria on early English genres.
