Harriet Phillips

Research Associate in English, Queen Mary University of London

I arrived at Queen Mary in 2013, after completing my Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge on cheap print and the popular past. Since then I have been working as a Research Assistant and subsequently as Editor on the Complete Works of Sir Thomas Browne. I have published on Shakespeare, on Thomas Browne and popular culture, and on early modern broadsides and the public sphere, and am currently revising my doctoral thesis into a monograph.

My key research interests are in early modern popular culture, print culture and the material text, collecting, nostalgia, and Thomas Browne. I am currently co-editing Pseudodoxia Epidemica, with Kevin Killeen and Jessica Wolfe, for Oxford University Press.

I am also currently working on a book about post-Reformation nostalgia and cheap print, and starting a new project about the early modern discovery of popular culture.
