I am Associate Professor in the English Department at Rhode Island College. I received my B.A. in English from Houghton College in 2007, my M.A. in Medieval Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2009, and my Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2014. My fields of expertise are Old and Middle English, history of the English language, digital humanities, the Bible as/in literature, translation, and the history of the book. Most of my interests in research and teaching encompass what might be called transmission studies: the afterlives of texts, including circulation, translations, adaptations, and re-presentations in various cultures and media.
