Margaret Summerfield


Margaret studies early modern literature with a particular focus on the work of John Milton. She is interested in seventeenth century print culture and the performance of gender identity both on the stage and in print. She is also beginning to dip her toe into sound studies with an interest in the soundscapes of seventeenth-century England and the ways in which these acoustic environments are represented in text.

Margaret received her B.A. in English from Bryn Mawr College and her M.A. in English from Fordham University.
