MEMORI – Dr Mary Morrissey (Reading) this eveningApril 23, 2015
The next MEMORI research seminar takes place tomorrow at 5.15 in room 2.48.
Dr Mary Morrissey (Reading) will be speaking on ‘Conversion and Reformation Polemic in John Donne’s Sermons’.
Mary’s research focuses on Reformation literature – particularly that emerging from London. Her 2011 monograph, Politics and the Paul’s Cross sermons, 1558-1642 (OUP), is a detailed study of England’s most important pulpit of the Reformation period, analyzing the rhetorical and interpretative strategies used by preachers on politically sensitive subjects and occasions. Mary also retains an interest in early modern women writers, with a particular focus on women writers’ use of theological arguments.
