PhD Supervision:

I welcome proposals from research students interested in working on any aspect of Old English or medieval literary culture, including (but not limited to) the following topics: the links between early medieval literature and material culture; the relationships between humans and nonhumans in early medieval literature; modern medievalism (especially in science fiction and fantasy); theoretical approaches to medieval literatures (especially new materialism and ecocriticism).
