My scholarship centers on the history of rhetoric, especially rhetoric in Ancient Athens and Rome and British rhetoric during the Renaissance and Enlightenment. I am currently working on the Renaissance writer Thomas Elyot (1490-1546). I have also long been interested in ethical concerns that rhetorical discourse raises.
