The Material Cultures of Early Modern Women's Writing: Editing, Reception and Mediation

This large-scale collaborative research program will provide the first comprehensive study of the textual transmission of early modern women's writing. Focusing on the neglected areas of women's editing, reception and mediation, the project will fill significant gaps in our understanding of the role that women's texts have played in the history of the book. In doing so, it will develop new resources such as a digital archive, and promote innovative methodologies for the analysis of early modern literary culture more broadly. Building on an active international research network, the project will open important avenues of scholarship in the fields of women's literary history, early modern literary studies and the digital humanities.
