Past Research

(a) textual criticism and history of books: 4 articles (transmission of Libro de Buen Amor and Celestina, Renaissance libraries, theory of textual criticism); papers on Spanish books of the Jewish diaspora and marginal com­mentary in medieval culture. I super­vised a PhD thesis on female authorship in the Renaissance.

I co-organized a conference on allegory, and mentored a postdoctoral fellow on early-modern devotional literature.

(c) impact of the Renaissance remapping of the world on the European episteme: 2 articles (representations of Africans and Turks), invited lec­tures on ethnography of Africa and India, PhD theses on anti-Islamic polemic and Mexican ethnography.
