From my earlier work on seventeenth-century radicalism, I have extended my interest into research on cultural connections and intersections in the early-modern period.  I am particularly interested in two related areas: human relations with the environment and with other species who co-exist within culture; and the seriousness of play as a component of the identities of different social and cultural groups.  I have published on horses, drama and class relations in the 1630s, and on aristocratic self-writing and identity.  Papers I have given on space, movement and changes in the formation of subjectivity form the basis of a large project, A Gadding Humour: Space, Movement and Identity.
