My dissertation, Great Fortitude of Mind and Much Charity, concentrates on the rise of humanism, book collecting, and vita apostolica in late-medieval nunneries through their disbandment and relocation during the English Reformation. I am particularly interested in groups of exiled nuns who founded new religious houses in the Low Countries and France.
In addition to bibliographic evidence, my research relies upon non-documentary sources such as archeological artifacts, devotional objects and art, and textiles.
When people refer to me, they use "she/her" pronouns.
