College Lecturer in Medieval History
BA, MSt Oxon

My career to date has been at Oxford.

In the course of my BA, I identified questions of gender as my central concern, and late medieval England as my field of inquiry. Having completed my BA, I took the MSt in Medieval History, and received a Distinction. My thesis was a study of female participation in popular protest.

My doctoral research, now in its final stages, considers representations of female desire in late medieval England, focussing on songs voiced or written by women.

Before joining Oriel, I was a stipendiary lecturer at Corpus Christi, Oxford, and a research associate at Worcester College, Oxford.

At undergraduate level, I teach medieval British and European and World papers ranging 500-1500. I also teach Approaches to History, and Disciplines, with a focus on gender and queer methodology.

At graduate level, I am a tutor on the Sources and Methods paper for the MSt in Medieval History.

Research interests

Gender and sexuality in medieval Europe, queer history.
