Mimi Ensley is a Marion L. Brittain Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her research uses book history and manuscript studies to explore the reception of medieval literature in England after the Protestant Reformation, and this interest in media and early English literature extends to her teaching. Her students often work with rare books and special collections in the Georgia Tech library, and past courses have focused on the history of the English language; the history of the book; supernatural themes in early English literature; and the creation of reading communities over time. She is revising her book manuscript, entitled “Difficult Pasts: Post-Reformation Memory and the Medieval Romance,” and her scholarship has appeared or is forthcoming in The Review of English Studies, the Journal of English and Germanic Philology, the Yearbook of Langland Studies, and the Journal of the Early Book Society. She is also the associate editor of College English.
