'The Sacred Histories: Genre and Narrative in the Works of Gregory of Tours'
My doctoral research examines the literary culture of late antique Gaul through the works of Gregory of Tours and his contemporaries. I am particularly interested in the develoment of distinctive authorial voices and strategies of narrative, and observing how these shift depending upon the genre in which they are found. My central question is this: how did you tell a story in sixth century Gaul?
