Personal profile

Research Interests

  • Medieval French literature and culture
  • Manuscript studies
  • Romance and lyric
  • Gender studies

My current research addresses the ways in which late medieval manuscript anthologies organize, communicate, and circulate knowledge. I am particularly interested in the place of Christine de Pizan's works in these manuscripts and am drawn to the interdisciplinary collaboration that enhances this research.

I am also interested in the cultural construction of gender and female voices in manuscripts, and especially in romance an lyric.
