My research interests centre on intersections of gender, law and political culture in Britain and France over the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries; and on medievalism in contemporary politics, media and popular culture. I have published on topics including masculinity, chivalry and treason law; popular protest and dissent in the premodern world; and on the relationships between Latin, vernacular languages and conceptions of national identity. I am currently working on a Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Fund project 'Embodying the Law: Manhood and Authority in the Making of English Legal Culture c.1300-1600'.
