medieval literature and culture; Shakespeare; medieval rhetoric; argumentation
My research and teaching are in the areas of medieval culture and argumentation. My current research project brings these two interests together in a study of patristic argumentation, specifically the relationship of knowledge and virtue. I regularly teach Composition, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Medieval Culture, and Survey of British Literature
