Harriet Archer (@DrHarrietArcher) works on textual reception and transmission in the late sixteenth century, and held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at Newcastle University from 2013-16. She is the editor, with Andrew Hadfield, of A Mirror for Magistrates in Context: Literature, History, and Politics in Early Modern England (Cambridge University Press, 2016), and the author of Unperfect Histories: the Mirror for Magistrates, 1559-1610, which is forthcoming with Oxford University Press.

Paul Frazer (@DrPaulFrazer) is a lecturer in early modern English literature at Northumbria University. He is interested in how authors used depictions of mobile bodies, things, and information to explore anxieties relating to wider ‘cultural change’ – such as technological innovation, religious reform, and the social effects of early modern urbanisation. He has published on ‘mobility’ in relation to contexts such as nationhood, religion, social placement, and print culture, and also works on early Tudor translation and post-reform propaganda.
