Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in all aspects of medieval literature, but my research focuses on Middle English and Older Scots literature and book history. I am in the process of producing the first full edition of the poetry of John Stewart of Baldynneis, whose work includes the first vernacular translation of 'Orlando Furioso' in a single manuscript witness dedicated to King James VI', for the Scottish Text Society. In addition to my Older Scots interests, I have published a number of articles on Arthurian literature. My next project uses literary, cartographical, and contemporary historical texts, as well as family papers and library records, to examine relationships between familial, regional, and national loyalties, focussing specifically on works and families associated with (real or imagined) border territorie
I would welcome enquiries from postgraduates interested in any aspect of Older Scots or Middle English literary culture, particularly Arthurian literature, book history, the politics of translation, and ideas of place,belonging, and foreignness in medieval text
