Laura Williamson Ambrose
I teach and write on the literature and culture of the early modern period. My research and published work focuses on domestic mobility, the history of cartography, women and travel, transport technology, and the history of reading in early modern English literature and culture. I also have interests in the history of science and cultural geography.
As a member of an interdisciplinary humanities department that examines the foundations of Western thought from the fall of the Roman empire to the present day, I teach seminars in the ancient world, medieval literature, the Renaissance and Reformation, and 17th- and 18th-century literature.
