Thursdays 9:00-10:50 am
& by appointment
I specialize in the literature and culture of the Middle Ages and Early Modern period, with concentrations on epic and romance, Early Modern travel narratives, Medieval and Renaissance conduct texts, gender studies, and animal studies. I work comparatively across different geographic areas of the Mediterranean, including Italy, Provence, France, Spain, and Catalonia. I have published articles on Boccaccio, Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, the Italian epic tradition, and medieval conduct literature. My book, Genealogies of Fiction: Women Warriors and the Dynastic Imagination in the Orlando furioso appeared in 2011 with Fordham University Press, and it is a study of the intersections of epic, gender, and genealogy in Ludovico Ariosto. I am currently working on a book on animals, education and contagion in medieval and early modern literature
