Allan Mitchell’s work crosses disciplines (rhetoric, ethics, science, technology, and ecology) with a primary focus on the poetry and prose of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. He recently completed Becoming Human: The Matter of the Medieval Child (University of Minnesota Press, 2014), devoted to the way subjects and objects animate one another within a “medieval ecological imaginary.” His other books are Ethics and Eventfulness in Middle English Literature (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009) and Ethics and Exemplary Narrative in Chaucer and Gower (D.S. Brewer, 2004), the recipient of a John Fisher Award. He edited John Lydgate's The Temple of Glas (MIP, 2007)
