Biography

William taught early modern / Renaissance literature at the University of Liverpool (2002-06), late medieval literature at the University of Manchester (2006-07) and both medieval and early modern literature at Liverpool Hope University  (2008-13) prior to joining UEA in 2013. He is a member of the Society for Renaissance Studies and the New Chaucer Society, and part of the Textual Ambassadors research network (based in Oxford and Cambridge: http://www.textualambassadors.org/). He is also a member of the Boydell and Brewer Chaucer Studies series Editorial Board. His research interests are in late medieval and early modern poetry, with a particular emphasis on Anglo-Italian literary and cultural interrelationships. In addition to translation he is interested in manuscript studies. William would welcome PhD students with interests in Chaucer, the tre corone (Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio), Sir Thomas Wyatt, and the fifteenth-century poet John Lydgate
