I am interested in words and the people that shape them. My work involves scholarly communication, editorial practice, and writing pedagogy. My background is in medieval literature and history, with a focus on fictional representations of the multifaceted crime of abduction in Middle English literature and concepts of personal and political consent formation in premodern England.
