I currently supervise both BA and MA-level theses. In general, I’m willing to supervise theses on Old and Middle English language and literature and medieval French literature. I can also supervise BA theses on French and English Canadian literature.

Within these areas, my supervision strengths include digital humanities approaches (including online projects, algorithmic criticism, TEI-based editions, and other digital approaches); women’s literature; Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales; medieval romance; multilingualism in medieval England; book history and manuscript studies; medieval reading communities; literary theory approaches to medieval literature; and the theory and practice of scholarly editing (including digital editions).

If you are a Leiden student with an idea for a thesis project, feel free to contact me to discuss it.
