Hope Johnston's research focuses on the literature of Britain, c.1100-1550, with a particular interest in the history of the book, vernacular translation, women's writing, and Chaucer reception studies.

Her edition of Christine de Pizan's Boke of the Cyte of Ladyes, trans. Brian Anslay (1521) is forthcoming as vol. 457 in the Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies Series, published by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. It appears in parallel with the Middle French text of Le Livre de la cite des dames from London, MS British Library Royal 19.A.XIX to facilitate comparative study of the two.
