I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, French section, with a secondary field in Medieval Studies. My dissertation focuses on the medieval mobility of a group of twelfth-century Anglo-Norman texts, including Wace's Brut, Marie de France's surviving works, and Benoît de Ste-Maure's Roman de Troie.
As an undergraduate at Boston University, I stumbled happily upon medieval French literature, where my interests still lie. I studied abroad at the Université de Paris, where I took many classes with a medieval focus. After graduating in 2009, I taught French at public and private schools in the suburbs of Boston before deciding to pursue graduate work at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Medieval Studies and, subsequently, at Harvard.
I am the co-convener of the Harvard Interdisciplinary Medieval Studies Workshop, and I'm always on the lookout for people interested in sharing ideas in our informal weekly meetings. Let me know if you are one such person!
