Frank Grady teaches courses in medieval literature, literary theory, and film. He has written widely on Chaucer and his contemporaries, and he served as editor of the annual Studies in the Age of Chaucer from 2002-2007. His book Representing Righteous Heathens in Late Medieval England (2005) explores how medieval writers used the figure of the virtuous pagan to confront a variety of historical, cultural and formal literary issues. A recent collection--Answerable Style: Form and History in Medieval English Literature (2013; co-edited with Andrew Galloway)--addresses the intersection of form and history in Middle English writing. He also co-edited the revised edition of the MLA's Approaches to Teaching Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (2014; with Peter Travis).
Current projects include work on Piers Plowman and on literacy in fifteenth-century England, and another edited volume, The Cambridge Companion to the Canterbury Tales (forthcoming, 2017).
