Ordinary Fellow, Side Tutor, Director of Studies Part IA
French, Italian, Occitan

I am a College Teaching Officer in French and Italian here at King’s, and I am the Director of Studies for our First Years.

I work on medieval literature across Romance languages, particularly medieval French, Occitan and Italian.  My recent research focuses on the role of foundresses in medieval French prose romances, but I also look at medieval manuscripts and their particular idiosyncrasies (every single manuscript of any given medieval text is different!); representations of food and feeding in medieval literature; and the ways in which current critical practices – particularly eco-critical approaches - might engage with medieval thought.

I teach  Introduction to French literature, film and thought (FR1) and Introduction to Italian Texts and Contexts (IT1/ITA3) in the first year; Medieval French Literature (FR3), and Translation and Oral Italian (ITB2) in the second, and medieval French and Occitan literature (FR7, FR15) in the fourth year; as well as paleography courses for our MPhil in in European, Latin American and Comparative Literatures and Cultures (ELAC).
