I study the relationship between drama and epistemology with particular focus on late medieval England. My current project, Producing Knowledge in the Middle English Mystery Plays, shows how late medieval popular drama was a central battleground for contemporary debates about the nature of knowledge and the politics of knowledge production. You can find some of my recent work on this subject in JMEMS.

My teaching interests and experience include Early English Literature to Milton, the History of Drama, Digital Humanities, Disability Studies, History of the English language, and Medieval Studies.
