Personal profile

Biography

Stephanie Russo specialises in early modern and eighteenth-century women's writing. Her work has focused on exploring representations of politics, monarchy, power, and revolution. She has published widely on a range of female novelists of the eighteenth century, including Jane Austen, Mary Robinson, Frances Burney,  Charlotte Smith, Sarah Fielding, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Eliza Haywood. She is particularly interested in recovery work on non-canonical women writers of the eighteenth century, such as Helen Craik and Sarah Harriet Burney.

Stephanie is also interested in historical fiction, and has a particular interest in women's historical fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. 

Her current research is focused on exploring the ways in which Anne Boleyn has figured as a symbol for a whole range of ideas about sex, history, politics, gender, religion and power. She is writing The Literary Afterlife of Anne Boleyn for Palgrave Macmillan's Queenship and Power series (due to be completed in 2020). This project will span five hundred years of writing about the Tudors, from the work of Sir Thomas Wyatt, to contemporary literary, televisual and digital texts.
