Sarah Ross - The Pulter Project

From Saturday Morning, 11:45 am on 24 November 2018

Sarah Ross is an associate professor in English at Victoria University of Wellington. Her research focuses on the writing of women in the Renaissance and early modern period, and especially on the interaction between politics, religion, and poetry in the years of the English revolution. Ross has worked on the poetry of Hester Pulter for more than 20 years, most recently anthologising her poetry in Women Poets of the English Civil War (with Elizabeth Scott-Baumann, 2017). Hester Pulter's poetry, written in the 17th century, was largely unknown until a large trove of it was found in the 1990s. Ross is one of the editors for The Pulter Project, run out of Northwestern University in Chicago, and launched last week.
