Research and Teaching Interests

The manuscript, early printed book and digital page as material object and cultural artefact; that is, the material and social conditions of the reception of historical texts and the historical context of book production. Current research centres on the anatomy – or paratextual mechanisms – of the page as a visual aid to literacy, particularly as it relates to mouvance. This research is influenced by (inter alia) theories of editing of medieval and early printed texts, the concept of the digital ‘page’, the development of digital editions and hypertext theory. Additional interests in representations of the transitional body in Old, Middle and Early Modern English literature, and the development and use of Digital Humanities tools and methodologies for medieval textual studies.
