Research interests

I research early modern literature and culture, in particular geographic and cartographic representation in the dramatic works of Ben Jonson. I am interested in the ways in which dramatic characters interact with geographic spaces and networks, and what this reveals about Renaissance attitudes towards geography, creativity, playfulness and performance. Alongside this, I am currently researching descriptions of physical motion within seventeenth-century lunar travel narratives. Uniting my research is an interest in the ways in which early modern writers understand and reflect theories of spatial movement within their constructions of character.
