My research interests include Old Norse-Icelandic paleography and philology, manuscript culture, hagiography and religious literature (poetry and prose), and women's and gender studies. I have published articles and book reviews in such venues as Scandinavian Studies, Journal for English and Germanic Philology, Scandinavian-Canadian Studies, Arthuriana, Arkiv för nordisk filologi, and Maal og minne. In 2014, I was awarded a Killam Research Fund award from the University of Alberta to conduct archival research for a book I have since co-written and published with Professor Kirsten Wolf (UW-Madison), entitled The Saints in Old Norse and Early Modern Icelandic Poetry. I have also recently published a detailed study, edition, and translation of the Old Norse-Icelandic legend of Martha and Mary Magdalen with the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. At present, I am examining the composition and transmission of poetry on female saints in post-Reformation Iceland. This research project, entitled "Mirrors of Virtue: Holy Virgins and Models for Womanhood in Early Icelandic Verse," is supported by a SSHRC Insight Grant.
