Research Interests: 

medieval studies; asceticism; poetics; manuscript studies; critical and political theory; Middle English.


I hold a BA in English from Beloit College, where I wrote a thesis on the fiction of Samuel Beckett and Central and Eastern European surrealist theory.  After graduating, I copy edited and beta tested digitized Latin manuscript transcriptions and paleography lessons for the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library, worked as a teaching assistant for a course on medieval manuscript studies, and taught high school English. 
At Chicago, I study late medieval literature and literary theory.
