His principal research interests are (1) characterization in medieval narrative (hair, beards and baldness); (2) short comic narratives of the later Middle Ages; (3) laughter, jest and ridicule in courtly and urban culture; (4) medieval drama; (5) Wolfram von Eschenbach's Parzival. He is currently working on: a monograph concerning charcterization in medieval narrative (hair, beards and baldness); a complete translation of 13C and 14C 'Mären' (as part of Cologne/ Tübingen 'Versnovellistik' project); and a bilingual edition of Heinrich Bebel's Libri facetiarum (1508; 1512)
