About Me

I was awarded my PhD in 2019 from the University of Warwick, where I also read for my undergraduate degree, having undertaken my Masters studies at the University of Oxford. My research focuses on the literature and history of the later Middle Ages. I am especially interested in the religious literature of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, religious culture in later medieval England, women’s reading habits in the fifteenth century, and the material culture of late medieval England, with a particular emphasis on the fifteenth-century household. I have published on medieval women’s writing and late medieval religious lyrics, and my first book, on the subject of domestic imagery in later medieval religious writing, will be published in January 2022.
