My main research interests are in Early British manuscripts--their materiality, contents and contexts of production and reception. I have published widely in this area over the last twenty years, focusing most specifically on religious poetry and prose and manuscripts dating from c. 1020 to c. 1220. I was Principal Investigator of the AHRC-funded research project and ebook, 'The Production and Use of English Manuscripts, 1060 to 1220' (http://www.le.ac.uk/ee/em1060to1220/), which ran from 2005 to 2010, and I've recently written Living Through Conquest: The Politics of Early English, 1020 to 1220(OUP, 2012). I'm also a textual editor, and among my work is Old and Middle English, c. 890-1450: An Anthology, 3rd ed. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009), and The Old English Life of St Nicholas(Leeds, 1997). Recent collections include Producing and Using English Manuscripts in the Post-Conquest Period,New Medieval Literatures13 (Special Issue, edited with Orietta Da Rold) (2013), and The Oxford Handbook of Medieval Literature in English(OUP, 2010), which I co-edited with Greg Walker. Together with Walker, I'm the General Editor of the OUP series, Oxford Textual Perspectives; I'm also the General Editor of the English Association's Essays and Studies series.
