Scholarly Activities

Research - Early Modern Literature and Culture

I have a particular interest in religious culture, especially the literary culture of Nonconformity and Dissent: its antecedents in the 17C and its global dissemination from the 18C on. Within this field, I have publications and ongoing research relating to women writers, John Milton, John Bunyan, Richard Baxter, and book history/print culture.
