Research interests

Research interests

  • Textual scholarship and editing
  • Archives and materiality
  • Handwriting; scribal and manuscript cultures
  • Digital humanities
  • History of letter-writing
  • History of the English language
  • Middle English literature

I work primarily on Middle and Early Modern English handwritten texts and their archival contexts. My most recent book, co-edited with Prof. Andrew Prescott, Archives: Power, Truth, and Fiction, was published in 2023 for the Oxford University Press series, 21st-Century Approaches to Literature. Since 2022 I have been collaborating with colleagues from across the University on a virtual reconstruction of Adam Smith's library that includes marginalia and annotations, in my role for the Templeton Smith@300 project.

During 2017-19 I held an AHRC Leadership Fellowship to lead the project Archives and Writing Lives, which examined the impact of digital scholarship on archival research. The research focused upon the letters of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Tudor financial accounts of Chatsworth House. Related resulting activities have included my role on the Steering Group for the Chatsworth House Devonshire Inheritance Project, 2021-23.

In 2017 I completed my monograph on Bess of Hardwick's Letters: Language, Materiality and Early Modern Epistolary Culture for the series Material Readings in Early Modern Culture (Routledge), one of the outputs of AHRC-funded project that I lead as PI, The Letters of Bess of Hardwick. Other outputs from this project included an Open Access interactive online edition with images and annotated transcripts of c.250 letters www.bessofhardwick.org (243k page views during 2013-17; data shared with and a landing page created within Women's Early Modern Letters Online; assignment to the OED Historical Reading Programme) and  an exhibition at National Trust property Hardwick Hall and The National Archives.

Another strand of my research and teaching focuses upon Middle English literature, its meanings and appropriations over time. I am currently co-editing, with Prof. Rory Critten, a student edition of the Middle English Seven Sages of Rome for the TEAMS series (Teaching Association for Medieval Studies, University of Rochester).  I have published on Middle English romance, medieval literary manuscripts and the afterlives of Chaucer's works. In 2012 I co-authored a book on medieval romance and its cultural, material and manuscript contexts (with Dr Nicholas Perkins) to accompany the Bodleian Library Romance of the Middle Ages exhibition.

Since 2018 I have been co-director of the University of Glasgow Textual Editing Lab. I am a member of the University's Centre for Gender History  and an advisory board member for Studies in Variation Contacts and Change in English (University of Helsinki) and the AHRC Manuscript Pamphleteering in Early Student England Project (Universities of Birmingham and Bristol). I regularly review for journals that  have most recently include The Library, Archives, Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, English Studies, Review of English Studies, New Medieval Literatures, The Journal of the Early Book Society, Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage, and The Yearbook of Langland Studies. Since 2017 I have served as a member of the AHRC Peer Review College.

I joined the English Language & Linguistics Subject Area at the University of Glasgow in 2006. I was previously (2002-6) Research Officer and web manager at the AHRC Centre for Editing Lives and Letters (CELL) at Queen Mary, University of London (now located at UCL), where I contributed to a range of digital archival projects that included the The Letters of William Herle (with Dr Robyn Adams). Prior to my appointment at CELL, I was employed at the University of Sheffield as Research Associate for The Auchinleck Manuscript, one the National Library of Scotland's Digital Resources (2003; data shared with JISC/HRI for Manuscripts Online, 2013). I am a graduate of the University of Kent (BA English Literature, 1st Class; MA Medieval and Tudor Studies, distinction) and the University of Sheffield (PhD, funded by a three-year full University Scholarship).

Teaching

At Honours level (third/fourth year undergraduate), I have convened the courses Editing Historical English Texts (ENGLANG4036), Reading the Past: From Script to Print (ENGLANG4051) and Middle English Literature 1 (ENGLANG4041). I have also previously contributed to teaching on History of English (ENGLANG4037) and Middle English Literature 2 (ENGLANG4042).

At pre-Honours level (first/second year undergraduate), I have previously convened Level 1 and Level 2 English Language (ENGLANG1001, ENGLANG1002, ENGLANG1003, ENGLANG2004, ENGLANG2005). I have delivered the lecture blocks on Middle English and Early Modern English language and literature including Chaucer and Shakespeare.

At post-graduate level I convene the course Early Modern Manuscripts for Research (College-wide, ENGLANG5040) and Early Modern Manuscripts for Research (ENGLAND5095). I have formerly contributed with modules on Palaeography and Renaissance Reading.

I provide dissertation supervisor for Honours and Level 5. I welcome applications for research degrees to supervise within my research areas, which are listed above under 'Research Interests'.
