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
