Dr. Katie Forsyth

ABOUT

KATYSYTH

I studied for my BA (English Literature and History) and my MA (Medieval and Early Modern Textual Cultures) at the University of East Anglia. In 2012 I moved to the University of Cambridge to undertake my PhD in English Literature. I graduated in July 2016 and moved to the University of Warwick to work as a sessional tutor in English Literature for the 2016-17 academic year. I was recently appointed to a two-year Teaching Fellowship in Medieval and Renaissance Literature.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My doctoral research (which I am revising for publication) was an exploration of the London book trade during the reign of Mary Tudor (1553-1558). I am broadly interested in Tudor and Reformation literature and print culture, as well as having a secondary research interest in John Milton and his relations with the seventeenth-century London book trade.
