ShrankProfessor Cathy Shrank
Professor of Tudor and Renaissance Literature
University of Sheffield
Cathy works on sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century literature. Her interest in this area dates back to her undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge where she completed her Masters in Renaissance Literature, developing a particular enthusiasm for Tudor writing, which she then pursued during her PhD on sixteenth-century humanism and national identity. Cathy is the author of ‘Writing the Nation in Reformation England’ (Oxford University Press, 2004) and co-editor of the prize-winning ‘Oxford Handbook of Tudor Literature’ (Oxford University Press, 2009). She has just finished editing Coriolanus for the Norton Shakespeare and Shakespeare’s Sonnets and A Lover’s Complaint for Annotated English Poets. Her current projects include a book about dialogue from the late medieval period to the Restoration, and she is one of the general editors of the ‘Oxford Works of Thomas Nashe’, one of the most innovative and experimental writers of the English Renaissance.
