I am a Ph.D. candidate in English at the University of Pennsylvania, where I recently completed a dissertation titled ‘Forms of Writing, Forms of War: England, Scotland, France c. 1300-1450’. Before coming to Penn as a Thouron Scholar in 2013, I studied in Edinburgh and Berlin. This transnational perspective informs my research, which centers on how war shapes literary culture in late-medieval Europe.
My work has appeared in New Medieval Literatures, Medium Ævum, and n+1. With R.D. Perry of the University of Denver I am co-editing The Hundred Years War and European Literary History for Manchester University Press.
