Andrea Frisch teaches French and Comparative Literature at the University of Maryland. Her most recent book, Forgetting Differences: Tragedy, Historiography and the French Wars of Religion (Edinburgh University Press, 2015), studies the rhetoric of reconciliation in the wake of France’s civil wars. Her newest book project, Fictions of Religious War in Early Modern France and Germany, is a comparative examination of the ways in which memories of the European religious wars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were transmitted through literary and historiographical works in the centuries after the Edict of Nantes. Rachel E. Holmes is a postdoctoral researcher on the ERC-funded project Crossroads of Knowledge in Early Modern England: The Place of Literature (CRASSH and the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge), and a Research Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge. She works transnationally on early modern European Law and Literature, with a particular focus on marriage and the problematic status of proof in sexual matters. She is currently revising for publication a monograph on clandestine contracts in early modern European law and literature, which argues that the popularity of the clandestine marriage plot in literature corresponds closely to legal debates. Toria Johnson is a lecturer in Early Modern English Literature at the University of Birmingham. Her areas of expertise include early modern drama and culture, the history of emotions, and the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Her primary research interrogates the effect of the Reformation on English emotional culture, with a specific focus on the role of pity and compassion in defining English understandings of subjectivity and ‘social’ emotion.

Jackie Watson completed her PhD at Birkbeck College, London, looking at the life of the Jacobean courtier Sir Thomas Overbury, and examining representations of courtiership on stage between 1599 and 1613.
