Research interests

My doctoral thesis focussed on the role of service magic in medieval and early modern English society. Spanning the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries, my research explored how magic was practised and by whom, whether this changed over the period, and how magical practice was integrated into English daily life, culture, and economic activity. This led to a consideration of the extent to which magic was tolerated at different social strata, from the employment of village cunning folk to magic's use at the English royal court. My doctoral research was funded by the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (part of the AHRC).

My current interests are in the treatment and social status of minority groups in the late medieval and early modern periods.
