My work focuses on medieval literature, manuscripts, incunabula, and marginalia in French, English, Italian, German, and Latin. My research interests include: power relations, the hegemonic and the marginal, the Other, East and West, transgression, gender, the body, sexuality, violence, medieval notions of antiquity, the materiality of the text, and post-philology.
My scholarship includes studies on a previously unknown iteration of the Oedipus and Sphinx legend, Christine de Pizan, and John Gower. My primary research project at the moment is a book that focuses on a manuscript (Bn fr 60) featuring the romances of antiquity. My examination of this codex in terms of its historico-political context (Paris, ca. 1330) yields a study that interrogates the intersection of gender, politics, and literature in relation to France and the medieval West in the early fourteenth century.
