Religious reading and everyday life in late medieval England
Take a look at my first monograph (out now!), Cushions, Kitchens and Christ, at the publisher's website: https://www.uwp.co.uk/book/cushions-kitchens-and-christ/

I am a medievalist with a particular interest in late medieval religious writing, the representation of daily life in spiritual texts, the use of metaphor and allegory in religious literature and women's reading practices in the later Middle Ages. I am especially interested in religious texts that were translated into Middle English from Latin in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and the impact of religious writing on the broader literary culture of late medieval England.
I completed my PhD as a CADRE scholar at the University of Warwick in 2019. I then took up a post as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Warwick's Institute of Advanced Study, which I held from 2019-2020.
