“Early Modern Conversations” (the alias) was born while I was finishing my PhD at Tufts University (2013) and editing a collection of essays entitled Conversational Exchanges in Early Modern England (1549-1640). I have long been outed as Kristen Abbott Bennett –some have asked why I haven’t changed my social media. To my mind, EMC reflects a spirit of collaboration and camraderie that I should like to foster. Plus, I like aliases.
I am building this site to share approaches to early modern scholarship and pedagogy that are in conversation with digital tools and platforms – it is a work in progress. At the moment, one may find excerpts of scholarship and syllabi, plus resources that I find helpful for research and teaching.
