About Me

I’m a literary historian who focuses on the reflection of life in literature, especially regarding gender and sexuality. My primary geographical focus is medieval Wales, albeit of course with overlap with the rest of early Britain and Ireland. I also do some work with medieval chronicles and manuscripts. I finished my PhD in 2017 at Aberystwyth University in Wales.
