Bronwyn Wallace received her Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania, where she also taught in the English Department and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program. Her monograph in progress, Still Reading: Renaissance Devotion and the Poetics of Remaining, is a study of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century devotional poetics that focuses on sites where bad feeling—melancholy, despair, nostalgia, grief—disrupts the order of time in reading, with particular consequences for women and femininity. An essay drawn from this project, 'Robert Southwell's Intimate Exegesis', was recently published in the volume Sensing the Sacred: Religion and the Senses in Medieval and Early Modern Culture (Routledge, 2018).
