Supervision Statement

  • I am available to supervise topics on medieval and English literature, mostly Middle English, but with some interest in Old English literature; topics in medievalism, and the history of emotions in medieval and early modern literature; and in the trajectory of medieval and early modern European emotions into modern culture, especially in Australia. I have also supervised several higher degree research topics on modern fiction and poetry.
