Expertise/Research Interests

We are all generalists in the English Department with regard to classroom teaching and the theoretical and practical research that supports it. My particular interests are in English literature before the mid-17th century, including Milton, Shakespeare, and Chaucer. My specialty is late medieval romance, especially Thomas Malory’s Le Morte Darthur.
