2018, BA English, University of Tulsa

Bio

I am I fourth-year Ph.D. student studying the overlap of friendship, loyalty, and virtue in Late Medieval Romance. I have studied French, Latin, some Old-English, and beginning Gaelic. I want to learn Italian, German, Norwegian, and possibly many more languages. I like to write, craft, sing, travel, watch and collect Disney and Marvel movies, and bake (my superlative in my undergraduate writing club was “most likely to be held hostage for her brownie recipe”).

Bio

I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research focuses primarily upon early modern literature and in particular, the intersections of poetics and performance, the fool figure, ballads and politics. My dissertation, “Changeling Humorists: The Speech Acts of the Early Modern English Fool,” traces the intellectual history of the fool figure through the seventeenth century. It explores how the fool democratizes an access to public voice and transfers a form of sovereignty to its audience. Currently, I am also editing Robert Armin’s Quips upon Questions for Digital Renaissance Editions.
