I'm primarily interested in Neo-Latin, including paradoxical encomia, medical and scientific literature, and texts related to the New World. I have also worked on erotodidaxis and declamations.

I'm currently working on an article on three Neo-Latin, wholly-unstudied paradoxical encomia of venereal diseases from the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. I recently gave a paper on the Latin medical satires of Dr. Christian Gottfried Gruner at the 2019 conference of the Southern Association for the History of Medicine and Science.

Other Projects

Taedio Victus

I got bored. Everyone else is doing the whole blog thing, so I should do what other people do.
As Κρέων says, «Σὺ δ᾽ οὐκ ἐπαιδῇ, τῶνδε χωρὶς εἰ φρονεῖς;»

I might add a podcast to that.
