My research employs ecological criticism and the study of place to highlight the role of the landscape in the literature of the medieval North Atlantic, especially that of England, Ireland, and Wales. I am also broadly interested in multilingualism and networks of literary exchange within the British Isles. My other research and teaching interests include the digital humanities (deep mapping, in particular), the history of the English language, American minimalism, and young adult fantasy literature.

Research Interests:

  • Old English, Old Irish, Middle Welsh; cultural interplay in the early British Isles; environmental humanities; deep mapping.
