Background

Stephanie’s research interests encompass the intersection of cartography, anatomy, and theology in early modern literature. Her dissertation, “Anatomical Cartography and Religious Dissent,” explores how early modern texts conveyed a theological stance, and thus a political opinion, through the figuration of the body and its localization in the cosmos. Secondary research interests include ecocriticism, landscape studies, and travel literature. Before coming to Boston University, Stephanie Shiflett earned an M.A. in French and B.A. in French, history, and creative writing at the University of Kansas.
