My dissertation, Marvelous Generations: Lancastrian Genealogies and Translation in Late Medieval and Early Modern England and Iberia, explores the legacy of Lancastrian kingship, especially its international dynastic claims, in the literature, drama, and visual art of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century England, Portugal, and Spain. The project has won support from the Ford Foundation, the Medieval Academy of America, the Program for Cultural Cooperation between US Universities and Spain's Ministry of Culture, the Luso-American Foundation, and the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
