Profile and Recent Scholarly Activity
Garrett studies late Middle English texts and medieval religious culture, with particular interests in Langland, visionary writing, vernacular theology, manuscript culture, and textual criticism. His current projects include an analysis of scribal and authorial revision in the Ilchester Manuscript of Piers Plowman, and a study of reciprocity and narrative theology in Raymond of Capua's Vita Catharinae Senensis (Life of Saint Catherine). When not burying his nose in medieval texts, Garrett has been known to write on contemporary pop music, especially punk and hip-hop.
