Expertise: Spanish and Portuguese
My main area of research is medieval and Renaissance Iberian literature and culture, and more specifically parody and satire, intersections with sanctity and popular devotion, material culture, ritual and theology.
Because much of my work examines cultural phenomena in changing contexts from the Middle Ages into the early modern period, I also research the works of later Spanish writers from the late fifteenth to the early seventeenth century, including Fernando de Rojas, Francisco Delicado, Quevedo, and others.
