Biography


I joined the University of Limerick in 2015 s as a lecturer in medieval and early modern English literature. Previously I held two postdoctoral fellowships: I was Irish Research Council / Marie Curie CARA CoFund Postdoctoral Fellow (2010-13) at Queen Mary, University of London, as well as NUI Postdoctoral Fellow (2007-09) at UCC. I also held the positions of lecturer in Medieval & Renaissance Literature at UCC (2006-07) and Teaching Fellow in English at the University of Bristol (2013-14).

My current projects include an edited collection on medieval recipes, with Hannah Ryley (University of Oxford); a volume of the Index of Middle English Prose for the Wellcome Library, London; studies on the Caxton fragment in the Bolton Collection, UL; and a special issue of Textual Practice with Mary C. Flannery.


I am a member of the executive committee of the Centre for Early Modern Studies (UL/MICL): https://emslimerick.wordpress.com and I am on the executive committee of the Irish Renaissance Seminar. I am also editor-in-chief of The Ogham Stone, UL's literary journal: https://theoghamstoneul.com.

My research interests include: late medieval & early modern manuscript/print culture; instructional and scientific cultures; women's writing in the medieval and early modern periods; medieval and early modern drama; early modern Irish literature; outlaw studies; digital humanities; 19th century book collecting and sales; and medievalisms.

Activities: acting director (to April 2020) of the Centre for Early Modern Studies, Limerick; Secretary, Early Book Society. Member of review board, Aigne (UCC's Graduate Journal). Reader for The Mediaeval Journal. Member of advisory board, Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies.
