About

Hi I'm Rebecca and I focus on English drama and literature in the late medieval period. I'm particularly interested in how different societal classes came into contact with various Middle English works. I'm also interested in examining the subtleties in Middle English translations, and how often, only one translation of a word is examined or given when multiple meanings add new depth and often humour to performances and stories.  At Queens I will be working under the supervision of Professor Husain.
