My interest lies not only in the grip of certain political fictions upon our imaginations, but also in the central role literature plays in originating, circulating, and—crucially—challenging those accounts.

Both projects draw together my interests in queer, feminist, and gender studies; early modern political theory; law; and manuscript studies and history of the book.
