Lecturer in Medieval English Literature
School of English, Drama and Film
University College Dublin
My research interests include Medieval English Literature, particularly religious vernacular writings of the Late Middle Ages. I am also interested in textual transmission and in book production, looking particularly at the transitionary period of the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century when manuscript production was gradually replaced by print. My work on the English Exornatorium Curatorum examined the question of continental influences of late medieval religious writings. I am is also working on an edition of the IMEP for Trinity College Dublin.
