My current lines of research focus on early modern women’s writing (1550-1750), with particular emphasis on prose, poetry, and pre-novelistic discourses. I am interested in seventeenth-century women’s writing within the European context as well as theoretical aspects of early modern women’s intellectual history, including eighteenth-century manuscript poetry and socio-economic considerations of early modern textual production. In 2012-2013 I was awarded postdoctoral research grants both at UCLA and Harvard University.
Two major academic publications directly related to this research are:
- A book, Women's Prophetic Writings in Seventeenth-Century Britain, Routledge, 2017. See link. See reviews of the book in Women's Writing and Tulsa Studies.
- An edited volume, with Nina Geerdink, entitled Mightier than the Spoon is the Pen: Economic Imperatives for Women’s Writing in Europe Before 1800. Brill, 2018.
