Research

I support open source and free access to scholarship, and so happily share my work when possible should it be of interest or help to anyone. I ask only that you cite it if you do.

Below are a series of lecture transcripts for talks, links, and other items on the history of fencing I have delivered, discussed, or written . The most recent, “High Heels & Hokum: The Demi-Pointe Lunge in Historical Fencing,” is a short look at a much larger project that is in the final stages before publication.
