Research: Medical writing on the Second Plague Pandemic, comparative contemporary perceptions of the history and geography of plague, "foreignization" of plague, contemporary images of the Second Plague Pandemic and how they are used/misused today, interdisciplinary plague studies including the intersection of science and history.
My postdoctoral research addresses the interplay between manuscript and print versions of the same medical texts in the early modern era.
