I am an Instructional Assistant Professor of English at Texas A&M University specializing in Old and Middle English Literature, with strong research and teaching interests in the Digital Humanities. I am also the Associate Editor of the World Shakespeare Bibliography and a member of the Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR) Advisory Board. My research, which incorporates both digital and traditional methodologies, investigates the connection between purgation and incarceration as it developed in the early Christian tradition. My dissertation, titled “Purgatory and Prison: Punitive Spaces in Old and Middle English Literature,” focuses on representations of Purgatory, Limbo, and Hell in Old and Middle English literature and examines what those penal spaces share in common with earthly carceral spaces.
