About

Sarah Werner is a book historian, Shakespearean, and digital media scholar based in Washington, DC. Her latest project, Studying Early Printed Books, 1450-1800: A Practical Guide, will be published by Wiley Blackwell in the spring of 2018; the book will be accompanied by a website showcasing images of hand-press books and pedagogical resources.

She has a PhD in English from the University of Pennsylvania and is the author of numerous works on Shakespeare and performance, including Shakespeare and Feminist Performance (Routledge 2001), as well as on bibliography, digital tools, and pedagogy.
