Biography

Lindsay Ann Reid is a graduate of the University of King’s College (BA in Early Modern Studies and Classics) and the University of Toronto (MA in Comparative Literature; PhD in English and Book History and Print Culture). Before joining the National University of Ireland, Galway, she previously taught at universities in Canada and worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey. She currently serves as Head of Second Year English at NUI Galway, and she is a regular columnist and Editor of Scholarship for The Shakespeare Standard. Broadly speaking, her research and teaching interests centre on late medieval and early modern British literature and culture. Her scholarship to date has focused primarily on the reception and adaptationof classical Latin poetry, and she is the author of a relevant monograph entitled Ovidian Bibliofictions and the Tudor Book (Ashgate, 2014). She has also published on topics including Spenser’s Faerie Queene, Beaumont and Fletcher’s Maid’s Tragedy, early modern broadside ballads, and printed poetical miscellanies. Her next major research project focuses on the ways that medieval vernacular literature informed early modern readings of classical poetry. She welcomes enquiries from prospective postgraduate students wishing to pursue research in affiliated areas.

English Literature of the Late Medieval and Renaissance Periods (especially Shakespeare, Spenser, Chaucer, Gower); Classical Tradition; Mythology and Folklore; Ancient Latin Literature (especially Ovid, Vergil); Adaptation and Reception Studies; Book History and Early Print Culture; Anthologies and Miscellanies; Broadside Ballads
