Political culture fascinates me, and in particular the design and deployment of rhetoric for political effect. I study this in the context of 13th-14th c. English royal administration and its domestic and diplomatic interlocutors. I am also interested in the question of women’s power, and especially their participation in diplomatic exchange. My recent monograph explores royal letters in the reign of Edward I, and I am currently working on the relationship between concepts of justice/injustice and political and moral complaint/advice in the Middle Ages, with my colleague Prof. Constant Mews.
