Research summary

My current project on 'The Renaissance Decameron' is funded by the AHRC Leadership Fellows scheme. I am completing a monograph which will be the first comprehensive study of the printed tradition of Boccaccio's major work in the 16th century, shedding new light on the mechanisms by which the Decameron achieved its current position in the canon of world literature, and enriching our understanding of early print culture and Renaissance reading publics. During the project I will create an online digital resource for the material study of Boccaccio and the forms of the early modern printed book.

I studied German and Italian for my first degree (BA Hons 1997) and went on to complete an MA in Medieval Studies (1999) at the University of Leeds. My doctoral thesis was a study of the reception of a selection of Boccaccio's Italian and Latin works in the 14th and 15th centuries (Leeds 2004). In 2003-04 I was a Lecturer in Italian at the University of Birmingham before returning to Leeds as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow (2004-2011). I was a Lecturer in Italian at Leeds (2011-12) before arriving in Bristol in 2012.
