I am interested in gender, the history of sexuality, and the social history of towns in later medieval Germany and Switzerland. My primary research interests concern prostitution and brothels in medieval German-speaking regions. I am currently working on a monograph proposal based upon my PhD thesis on the same topic, and on an article which reevaluates the role of brothel ordinances (Frauenhausordnungen) in the regulation of prostitution in medieval Germany. In the course of my research I have also spent time studying criminal court records from late medieval Zurich, and am interested the methodological problems of subjectivity and agency in legal sources.
