Sarah Powrie

Sarah Powrie is the Department Head of English at St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan.

Dr. Powrie publishes on medieval and early modern topics. She has several publications investigating the philosophical and allegorical sources of Chaucer's dream visions. She is also interested in continuities bridging medieval and early modern periods. She has published several articles identifying ways in which early modern writers (John Donne, Edmund Spenser, Nicholas of Cusa) appropriate medieval theories of metaphysics or cognition. Her articles appear in the Chaucer Review, Modern Philology, SEL, Studies in Philology, Renaissance and Reformation, Connotations, The American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, and the John Donne Journal. She was a co-recipient of the John Donne Society Award for Distinguished Publication in 2015.
