My research and teaching focuses on questions of women and power, authority, and agency. I focus specifically on queens and queenship and am currently finishing a book on Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of King Henry VIII of England. In this book, tentatively entitled Portraits of Catherine, is not a conventional academic study nor a biography, and it uses material culture in the form of clothing and shoes she wore, books she commissioned and read, paintings and objects of art that she owned to get a richer sense of who she was.
