Research Overview

I teach and research fifteenth- and sixteenth-century writing in English (generally from a twenty-first century critical perspective). While my research interests are varied, I mainly work on: Ovidian mythology; Tudor gothic; premodern gothic; surface studies; the cultural politics of Tudor translation. My current book-length projects are Shakespeare on the Ecological Surface (Routledge, in press) and Tudor Gothic (Cambridge University Press, contracted 2024). With Duncan Lees (Warwick University), I am co-editing an edited collection of essays called Translating Shakespeare: Access and Mediation (Palgrave, contracted 2024). I am also editing Christopher Marlowe's translation of Ovid's Elegies for The Oxford Marlowe Project.
