Teaching


Undergraduate

My undergraduate teaching is at the University of Toronto Mississauga, where I have taught the following courses:

ENG 110 Narrative
ENG 300 Chaucer
ENG 330 Early Drama
ENG 40x – I have taught 400 level seminars on Medieval Dreams and Visions and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

I also teach students within the UTM Research Opportunity Programme: my ROP students work with me on a variety of research projects, and have travelled to Boston, Los Angeles and, in the United Kingdom, to London and Cambridge to conduct archival research.

Graduate

I offer graduate level courses through both the Department of English and the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. Some of these cover skills and theories of book history and codicology: ENG 6954 and 8000 Bibliography and MST 1115 English Palaeography 1000-1800. My other research seminars cover topics drawn from my current research

I supervise or co-supervise PhD students from the Department of English and the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. These students are working on a range of topics: Chaucer’s French sources; the codicological contexts for early fourteenth and fifteenth-century Middle English literature; wonder in medieval narrative; medieval manuscripts of medical texts.

I serve on the committees of students – in English, History, Medieval Studies, Art History, and Book History and Print Culture – doing research across an even broader range of topics. I am always happy to discuss research with prospective Toronto graduate students, especially in the areas in which my own research is focused – Chaucer; medieval book history; digital approaches to manuscript studies; the advent of printing; bibliography, codicology, and theories of text; Tudor antiquarianism; and literature of the early Tudor period.
