Research

I recently completed my doctorate, which was a comparative project exploring late medieval poetry composed about the Virgin Mary in poetic competitions in towns and cities. I am interested in the way these lyrics reflect the urban spaces in which they were written, and the interplay between the ludic and devotional elements of their performance context. 

I am currently Stipendiary Lecturer in German at St Hugh's and St Anne's, where I teach translation for all year group, the Prelims literature course, Paper VI, IX, and VIII. 

I enjoy doing outreach work and have offered several taster sessions for St Anne's for students interested in languages and medieval studies.
