Published and Forthcoming Publications (2019-2020)

The hectic aspects of the past year has meant that I have neglected my website. Please accept my apologies! In this short post I am going to just list my most recent publications and discuss some of those that are forthcoming. The first two are an article and a contribution to a collection of essays in honor of the great historian of the military orders, Dr. Alan J. Forey. The subsequent items are set to appear in journals this year and in 2021. While it's been an insane year so far, the opportunities to publish my work and collaborate (even in the times of COVID-19) has really shown me the communal aspect of academia, and how creative scholars are.
