ReConEx podcast 5: Micheline White on women writers in the West Country

In this episode of the podcast, Philip Schwyzer and David Parry speak to Professor Micheline White, Associate Professor of English at Carleton University. Micheline is particularly interested in Renaissance women’s writing in relation to Reformation history and the religious history of the early modern period, and has recently been working on Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIII’s wives. Micheline has also published widely on women writers of the West Country, including women with links to the Exeter area who we will be focusing on in our conversation today. Our discussion focuses especially on Anne Dowriche, Anne Locke Prowse and Katherine Rous.

Towards the end of the podcast we discuss Micheline’s blog post on Katherine Rous at the Early Modern Female Book Ownership blog which can be accessed at this link.
