“Authorizing Early Modern European Women” available December 6!


I’m thrilled to announce the publication of a new book of essays about early modern women in biofiction, “Authorizing Early Modern European Women: From Biography to Biofiction,” coedited by myself, Jim Fitzmaurice, and Sara Jayne Steen – coming out on Dec. 6 from Amsterdam University Press!

The essays in this volume analyze strategies adopted by contemporary novelists, playwrights, screenwriters, and biographers interested in bringing the stories of early modern women to modern audiences.
