About Me

My BA is from Columbia College; my MA from Oxford University, and my PhD from Columbia Columbia. Though my research has spread into different fields, I have always focused on the relationship between literature, theology and politics. My early work (which continues to occupy my scholarly attention) was on John Milton and the English Revolution. Milton's Warring Angels published by Cambridge University Press in 1996 was one of the fruits that interests. In the following decade, I shifted my attention to the later High Church languages of England of the early 18th century – which resulted in many articles, and my edited volume, Mary Astell: Reason, Gender, Faith (Ashgate, 2005). More recently I have been working on psychoanalysis and cultural criticism and bringing those theoretical paradigms to bear on a different set of theological discourse.
