About the Author

Katharine Gillespie teaches at Miami University and is a pioneer in studies of seventeenth-century English women writers who participated in religious and political dissent from the crown and established church. Gillespie's research demonstrates the need to work across such disciplines as literature, religion, economics, and political philosophy in order to fully take the measure of early modern women writers' contributions to social movements and intellectual histories.
