CURRICULUM VITAE

Dr. Emma Lesley Depledge (BA, MA Leicester, PhD Geneva) specialises in seventeenth and eighteenth-century literature. Her research interests include authorship studies, book history and bibliography (especially the study of watermarks and laid paper), theatre history, royalist writing and mock-heroic poetry. Emma was employed as an Assistante and Maître Assistante at the University of Geneva before joining the University of Fribourg in 2014.

Emma’s first book, Shakespeare’s Rise to Cultural Prominence: Print, Politics and Alteration, 1642-1700 (forthcoming, Cambridge University Press), argues that the Exclusion Crisis of 1678-82 ought to be seen as the watershed moment in Shakespeare’s authorial afterlife. She is also co-editor of Canonising Shakespeare: Stationers and the Book Trade, 1640-1740 (with Peter Kirwan, Cambridge University Press, 2017), the first comprehensive study of Shakespeare’s print history, 1640-1740.

Emma’s current book project focuses on mock-heroic poetry and the book trade, Politics, Print and the Popularisation of English Mock Heroics, 1660-1740 was supported by a Fonds National Suisse (FNS) Early Postdoc.Mobility Fellowship, which enabled her to conduct research at The Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library and Beinecke Library, and The Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington D.C.

She is also co-editing a collection for Oxford University Press (with John Garrison and Marisa Nicosia), entitled Making Milton: Writing, Publication, Reception, and a special issue of the Huntington Library Quarterly (with Rachel Willie), entitled ‘Performance and the Paper Stage, 1642-1695’.
