Julianne Werlin

Bacca Foundation Assistant Professor of Rhetoric, Culture and Society

My teaching and research interests include early-modern poetry and prose, literary stylistics and poetics, early-modern capitalism, and biographical, sociological, and demographic approaches to literary history. I am currently completing a book on the impact of early-modern economic change on textual circulation and am planning a prosopographic study of early modern writers.
