I am currently a Visiting Scholar at the Centre for British Studies/Großbritannien-Zentrum at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Before this, I was a College Lecturer in German at Oriel College, Oxford, and I completed my DPhil at Merton College, Oxford in 2016. The project was an AHRC-funded comparative study of late-medieval accounts of pilgrimage from Germany and England to Jerusalem. I approached these writings as literary texts, which can reveal how their authors understood their identity, individually and collectively, and how they understood the practice of pilgrimage.
