As I've pursued this research, I've developed a related interest in textual editing. With Elizaveta Strakhov, I am the co-editor of John Lydgate's Dance of Death and Related Works (Medieval Institute Publications, 2019) and with R.D. Perry, I am editing Chaucer's Legend of Good Women for a new critical edition of Chaucer's collected works from Cambridge University Press.
I've also written and lectured on the Elizabethan Society of Antiquaries, heralds and heraldry, the history of the miscellany, pre-photographic representations of medieval books and artifacts, and pedagogy of the History of the Book. I currently serve on the council of the Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School and was co-organizer of the 2018-19 theme for the Colby Center for Arts and Humanities, The Presence of the Past.
