She pursues two research interests, one concerns legal and literary discourse in medieval England, which has led to several articles and co-edited volumes. The other, on Chaucer's popular reception, has resulted in American Chaucers (Palgrave/Macmillan, 2007) as well as numerous articles. Candy is a founding editor of the collaborative group that is developing The Open Access Companion to The Canterbury Tales. This free online resource is intended for readers who are relatively unfamiliar with British literature or literary theory.

Rice University

Her BA in English program stressed on literary analysis, diversity, critical thinking, and written and oral communication skills through a rigorous curriculum of literature, composition, language and linguistics, and communication studies. It was an excellent preparation for careers in teaching, media, advertising, writing, and publishing; for graduate or professional studies in English, communications, or law; and for advancement in any field in which communication skills are important. As she was interested in creative writing, she chose to concentrate in creative Writing.

Duke University

After graduating, Candy went on to pursue careers in teaching, publishing, writing, film production, medicine, business, law, and various positions in academia. She strives to help students see that they are engaged in lifelong learning processes, not only for themselves, but with and for people in the world around them.


2,000 Projects Completed

Extending her long-term work on the Global Chaucers project—an international collaboration with scholars, translators, and students on every continent—Candy’s project refines and redefines the theoretical paradigms that shape and govern the study of The Canterbury Tales in translation. Already her methodological approach—comparative translation—allows her to push beyond the "cultural turn" in translation studies. Using the material gathered via this methodology, she will work to understand these translations' hermeneutical implications by developing a theoretical model that reveals the ways multiple translations can inform people’s interpretation of a source text.


600 Projects Completed

Currently, Candy is co-editing the Cambridge Companion to Medieval English Law and Literature with Sebastian Sobecki (University of Groningen). Her second research interest examines Chaucer’s popular reception. In this vein, she has written American Chaucers (2007) and contributed articles to Sex and Sexuality in a Feminist World (2009), American Literary History (2009), and European Journal of English Studies (2011).


1,308 Projects Completed

Candy collaborates with Jonathan Hsy (George Washington University) on Global Chaucers, a project focusing on non-Anglophone adaptations and translations. With Hsy, she maintains an active blog and have written articles for Medieval Afterlives in Contemporary Culture (2015), Accessus (2015), and postmedieval (2015). Together they are co-editing an issue for the Global Circulation Project at Literature Compass.


250 Projects Completed

Because of her interest in teaching and Chaucer’s global reception, Candy is a founding member of the Editorial Collective for the Open Access Companion to The Canterbury Tales, a project developing a free, high quality, open-access introductory volume reaching Chaucer’s global audience of English readers from a wide diversity of institutions.
