Elspeth Currie is a PhD student and researches women’s Latin education and intellectual lives within the humanist household of early modern England. She is particularly interested in the connections between women’s intellectual agency and their familial ties.
Elspeth graduated summa cum laude with a BA in History and Classical Studies from Gordon College in 2016 and received a MSt in Women's Studies with high distinction from the University of Oxford in 2017. Her earlier research studied classical reception in the Jacobean querelle des femmes and matrilineal intellectual legacies in seventeenth century England. Before returning to higher education, Elspeth taught Latin and history at the secondary level.
