Professor Julie Sanders confirmed as our second keynote

It gives us great pleasure to announce Professor Julie Sanders as one of our keynote speakers for this year’s conference, Works in Progress.

Professor Sanders’ work is an extraordinary mix of leading publications on early modern literature and adaptations studies. Her oeuvre includes but is hardly limited to the monographs, Caroline Drama (1999), Adaptation and Appropriation (2006), Shakespeare and Music (2007), The Cultural Geography of Early Modern Drama, 1620-1650 (2011) and  The Cambridge Introduction to Early Modern Drama, 1576-1642 (2014). She has worked extensively on Ben Jonson, and has edited Jonson’s The New Inn and James Shirley’s The Bird in the Cage.

Her international reputation is buttressed by her appearances on BBC Radio 4’s prestigious ‘In Our Time’, where she has been invited to speak on pastoral literature, Elizabethan and Jacobean revenge tragedy, the history of metaphor, Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, and the metaphysical poets.

We look forward to welcoming Professor Sanders to De Montfort with great excitement!
