Allyna Ward

Before moving to Canada to take up a position as Assistant Professor of Early Modern English Literature, I taught at Durham University (UK) and Newcastle University (UK) and held a postdoctoral position as editorial assistant for the Modern Humanities Research Association. I am primarily interested in Tudor tragedy and history, and especially how Protestant reform influenced early modern literature. My recent monograph, "Women and Tudor Tragedy: Feminizing Counsel and Representing Gender" is now available in print and as an e-book. My new research project, "Lucan and the Tudors: Shakespeare, Marlowe and Nashe", seeks to provide a comprehensive study of the significance of Lucan in the literature of the Tudor era.
