Research

 

My current projects include a study of Czech involvement in the Investiture Contest, a book-length analysis of Lampert of Hersfeld's Annals, another on the composite "Deeds of Wiprecht of Groitzsch", a broader examination of historical writing in the troubled reign of Henry IV and its aftermath, and essays on Central Europe in the Ottonian era.  With Jonathan Lyon (University of Chicago), I am also developing a website dedicated to Slavs and German along the medieval Elbe:
