research Interest
I study primarily poetry and drama in the early modern period extending into the Restoration and eighteenth century. My  research focus is on literary representations of music including music's relation to science, sound, space, motion, power, and agency. With my interest in music, naturally I also study performance and performativity. Lately I've been nursing a long-held fascination with theories of consent, particularly in terms of gendered, sexual, and political relations.
