Carme Font Paz


Mary of Ágreda

Carme Font Paz is Associate Professor of English Literature at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, and Research Associate at the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. She is also director of the European-funded large-scale project WINK “Women’s Invisible Ink: Trans-Genre Writing and the Gendering of Intellectual Value in Early Modernity”. As a specialist in prophetic genres and early modern women’s writing, she seeks to provide a model for qualitative analysis of neglected textualities by women and correct the dynamics of androcentric literary representation, seeking the full integration of women in the systems of knowledge production and transmission. Her latest books are Women's Prophetic Writings in Seventeenth-Century Britain (Routledge, 2017) and, with Nina Geerdink, Economic Imperatives for Women's Writing in Early Modern Europe (Brill, 2018). She is guest editor of the special issue Early Modern Textual Misogynies (Women's Writing, Routledge, 2021).
