-

venue to be announced

Edel Lamb's research focuses on the intersections between early modern children and literary cultures.  She has received fellowships from the Leverhulme Trust, Australian Research Council, the Irish Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) and the Huntington Library (USA) to pursue this topic.  She has written two books, Performing Childhood in the Early Modern Theatre (2009) and Reading Children in Early Modern Culture (2018), which offer new understanding of early modern childhood through an analysis of the children’s playing companies and the child as reader.  The New Companion to Renaissance Literature and Culture (ed. Michael Hattaway, 2010) and The Child in British Literature (ed. Adrienne Gavin 2012). A further essay, co-written with Prof. Kate Chedgzoy (NCL), is forthcoming in The Cambridge History of Children's Literature (2022).  See also her work on early modern children's literature in the June 2021 episode of the Society for the History of Children and Youth podcast https://shcy.pinecast.co/episode/d9c98e9e/reading-children-in-early-modern-culture.  Dr Lamb is currently working on a new Leverhulme Trust-funded project on writing by early modern girls, which constructs a corpus of girls' writing between 1544 and 1704.
