research overview

  • Dr. Glimp specializes in Renaissance English literature. Most of his work has explored how English authors of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries engaged aspects of Renaissance moral and political philosophy, though he also has interests in contemporary literary and social theory. He is currently completing a project on discourses of security and the genres of emergency in the Renaissance. He has begun another project provisionally entitled 'The Infrastructures of Renaissance English Literature,' focusing on how literary texts represent the processes through which governmental infrastructures both make and unmake worlds.
