Professional Bio

I am a first year M.A. student with research interests in Anglo-Saxon Literature, medieval literature, and popular representations of the Middle Ages. Following an early love of Tolkien, I am interested in studying the similarities and differences between modern and medieval worldviews, and how popular representations of the Middle Ages (historically accurate or not) illustrate 21st century fears, desires, and changes in identity.
