Areas of research supervision

I am currently supervising or co-supervising a number of doctoral projects. I am happy to consider enquiries from potential doctoral students on the following topics:

  • Medieval English literature and culture and especially the works of Chaucer, Langland, Usk, Hoccleve and Gower.
  • The ethics of household, marriage, the body, family, sex and labour in medieval literature and culture.
  • The literature of devotional culture and especially material culture in the late Middle Ages and through the Reformation.
  • Medieval medical humanities.
  • Theoretical approaches (both medieval and modern) to the study of medieval texts.

You are welcome to contact me informally to discuss your ideas for an MPhil or PhD project at i.davis@bbk.ac.uk
