I am a late medieval historian, focusing on the interplay between culture and politics in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. My first monograph, The Livery Collar in Late Medieval England and Wales: Politics, Identity and Affinity was published by Boydell & Brewer in 2016. I was awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in 2017 (University of Nottingham) to study 'The Culture of Loyalty in Fifteenth-Century England'. I am currently preparing the monograph for publication.

Dr Michael Wuk Associate Lecturer
My research concerns the later-Roman and early-medieval worlds, especially the social, religious, and institutional history of the late-antique Mediterranean and Near East (fourth-seventh centuries CE). Within these broad parameters, my work investigates concepts of obligation and interactions between rulers, subjects, and other sources of authority. Additionally, I have an abiding interest in the use of documentary sources, such as church conciliar acts and papyrus records. These themes are represented in my AHRC-funded PhD thesis on oath-taking, which I am in the process of turning into a monograph.
