About Becky Straple-Sovers

I'm the Marketing Specialist at Medieval Institute Publications. I got my Ph.D. in English from Western Michigan University in 2021 and my research focuses on moving bodies in early medieval literature, gender and sexuality in early medieval literature, and historically informed performance and embodied scholarship. I'm interested in interviewing authors of books published by Medieval Institute Publications, which focus on premodern humanities scholarship and include monographs, edited collections, editions and translations of medieval texts meant for classroom use, and five journals.
