My particular research interests are Restoration drama and literature, early modern culture, and manuscript studies. My AHRC-funded doctoral thesis focused on the 1670-71 theatrical season, examining the cultural, political, and literary tensions that fuelled, and were reflected in, the season’s plays.
I am part of the editorial team of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Aphra Behn (forthcoming 2020-22), for which I have been editing the anonymously published Counterfeit Bridegroom (1677) for Volume 2; I will also be editing The Revenge (1680).
My published research has focused on networks of manuscript transmission in England and the compilation of poetry miscellanies in the seventeenth and early-eighteenth centuries. I have recently contributed a chapter on Jonson’s reception in the Restoration to Ben Jonson and Posterity (CUP), and my forthcoming publications include articles on the Restoration contexts of Milton’s Samson Agonistes and The Counterfeit Bridegroom’s relationship to its source material.
