A talk by Dr. Kirsten Inglis (PhD), University of Alberta

Abstract
This talk argues for Esther Inglis’s 1624 hand-drawn copy of Georgette de Montenay’s Emblemes ou Devises Chrestiennes as a work of translation that intervenes in the turbulent politics of late Jacobean England.

Dr. Kirsten Inglis (PhD) is a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the University of Alberta’s Department of English and Film Studies. Her monograph, Gifting Translation in Early Modern England, is forthcoming from Amsterdam University Press.
