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 Tudor and Stuart translation: embodiment; emotions; Ovidian mythology; premodern gothic; surface studies. My current book-length projects are Shakespeare on the Surface (Routledge under contract) and Travel, Translation and Tudor Sensibilities: Thomas Churchyard's Passionate Histories (Leverhulme funded).
