Academic Background

My research focuses on the nature and development of historical thought in early seventeenth century England. Focusing specifically on the historical writing of the poet and historian Samuel Daniel (1562/3-1619), my work examines the place of narrative writing within the broad range of historical forms practised in the era, viewing Daniel's The Collection of the History of England (1612-18) as a text in dialogue with antiquarian, politic, poetic, and chronicle traditions of history writing.
