I’m a third-year PhD student in English specializing in medieval literature, with interests in digital humanities, medieval science, manuscript studies, and medievalisms in popular media. Previously, my work has centered on a range of manuscripts including bestiaries, scientific miscellanies, and most recently a 15th-century French copy of the Regime du Corps. My current research examines how contemporary ideas about medieval literature and premodern processes of feeling map onto modern constructions of emotion, nostalgia, and historical memory, through analysis of medieval literary and medical texts and multimodal forms of media about the Middle Ages.
I am currently an instructor of record at Queens College in Flushing, NY, where I teach writing and literature. I am also designing and producing a podcast about medievalism in the modern world, which will release in 2021. Recently, I translated the “Ballades to Henry Somer”, a series of letter-poems by the medieval clerk and writer Thomas Hoccleve, which can be found here.
In addition to my work as a medievalist, I am a freelance writer working on cultural criticism and new media, including writing about games and film. Some of my recent work can be found here and here.
