Bacca Foundation Assistant Professor of Rhetoric, Culture and Society
My teaching and research interests include early-modern poetry and prose, literary stylistics, state formation, utopianism, the history of technology, and the sociology of literary forms. My current project, entitled Paperworks: Bureaucracy and Literature in Early Modern England, explores the effects of bureaucratic methods on the development of literary styles and genres over the course of the seventeenth century, in the works of Bacon, Milton, Marvell and Samuel Pepys.
