I study the aristocracy of late medieval France, focusing on political and social ideologies in relation to practice. My research focuses primarily on administrative and legal records, but explores these through a variety of approaches, including close textual readings, quantitative analysis, and linguistic studies. From September 2016, I have been looking at lordship in the provinces of Normandy and Languedoc in the fourteenth century as part of a comparative study across France, the Low Countries, and England.
