Half cultural theorist, half medievalist, I spend my days grazing on a diet of pop culture and penguin classics, trying to find links between medieval monk-detectives and Adrian Monk the detective, or between Peter Lombard and Peter Andre. It explains why I frown so often, and why I place so much faith in the minutiae of life…
The current projects section gives summaries of what I am working on right now. If you are interested in getting involved, please do drop me a line; I’m always happy to hear from researchers in the same fields. I am also one of the series editors for I.B. Tauris’s New Directions in Medieval Studies book series: if you’d like to talk about a proposal for that series, do head over to their web page for more info.
I have posted links to several conference papers I have given over the years which explore these ideas in more detail. Many of these are works in progress and/or the basis for later publications. Please don’t steal them… or at least please credit me if you do.
Hope you enjoy it, and I hope some of this might be of use.
