Research interests

I'm interested in how Anglo-Saxon textual and material cultural productions have been translated, reinterpreted, and represented in 20th and 21st century texts, visual art and performance, and heritage organisations. My research asks what sort of identities and communities the medieval is called upon to create today, and why and how those interested in the study of literature might engage with new, multimedia, interdisciplinary productions.

I'm currently looking at the use of Old English poetry (including Beowulf and the Rune Poem) at Sutton Hoo: considering performance, movement, and landscape, and ways of knowing the past.
