Research overview

Research overview

I work mainly on Tudor and Stuart history, and in particular, sixteenth-century ballads in print, manuscript and the oral tradition.  My current research investigates the ballads associated with the Pilgrimage of Grace.  I’m also beginning research into the links between sixteenth-century ballads, psalms and epitaphs, as well as some work on Fake News or Fact in Topical Ballads, and the ballads of the Armada period.  I am preparing a large-scale grant application for a project on popular beliefs about health and wellbeing.
