I am a PhD candidate working on medieval French literature and music. My dissertation, Taking Note: French Literature and the Senses of Notation, 1230-1310, asks what the presence of musical notation in French manuscript sources can tell us about literary culture during this period of momentous change in the written record. I am also particularly interested in historical sound studies, the circulation of French across the wider medieval world, and, beyond the Middle Ages, the history and culture of French North America. Before coming to NYU I received an M.Phil. from Cambridge and a B.A. from Amherst, and also studied at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland.
