I'm Lisa. I am a staunch feminist who loves Snow White & Ariel a bit too much. Take that for what you will.

Books I’m reading completely unrelated to my thesis because reading/writing about the same thing all the time gets really old. My research interests are rather odd. I am interested in Early Modern Europe (especially Britain) and US history. I’ve become fascinated with Civil War politics even though I hate studying the war itself (Military history just doesn’t interest me). I read the Renaissance Comic Tales in undergrad but like any good undergrad, I skimmed it and didn’t really bother looking at it more than I had to. Figured, why not read a book that contains mostly Early Modern sex jokes? Isn’t it painfully obvious I’m a grad student?

Renaissance Comic Tales of Love, Treachery, and Revenge edited & translated by Valerie & Robert Martone.
