Dr Liz Oakley-Brown

Senior Lecturer

Research Overview

I teach and research fifteenth- and sixteenth-century writing in English. While my research interests are varied, I mainly work on: the cultural politics of early-modern translation: embodiment; emotions; mythology; surface studies (see surfacestudies.org). My current book-length projects are Travel, Translation and Tudor Sensibilities: Thomas Churchyard's Passionate History and Shakespearean Surfaces: Reading, Writing and Performing Superficiality in Sixteenth-Century England.
