Research interests

JoinvilleAs you have probably realized by now, I am a medievalist/early modernist. I am primarily interested in medieval historical writings (chronicles, annals, memoirs, and diaries). I am also fascinated by the idea of authorship in the Middle Ages, with everything that revolves around it (anonymity, scribal interventions, individual or collective authorship, authorial self-expression, and authority).

Please visit this page if you want to know more about my publications on medieval topics. You can also scroll down to find out more about my past research projects and my favorite medieval links.
