About me

Introduction I am a librarian and medievalist interested in technologies of mind and memory. I hold a Ph.D. in English from Columbia University with a specialization in medieval literature, and my scholarship concerns the reading of courtly romance in the context of scholastic philosophy and psychology. I am Librarian of the Vassar Collge Art Library, and teach courses in allegory and Chaucer in the Vassar College Department of English. My book, "She, this in blak": Vision, Truth, and Will in Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde, was published in 2006. At present I am working on an essay on Edna St. Vincent Millay, and a book of essays entitled The Automaton in the Archive: Post-human Memories. I also host "The Library Café," a weekly radio interview program aired on WVKR, about scholarship, libraries, and the formation and circulation of knowledge.
