Amy Gant Tan
Research Assistant Professor of History
Amy Tan is a historian of religion, print, and politics in early modern Britain. She has recently published “Resisting the Devil: The Case of Edward Dynham (1626) and Options for English Protestant Dispossession,” Reformation & Renaissance Review, 2017. She is also completing a related article examining how changes to the 1615 version of Alexander Nyndge's dispossession functioned within the seventeenth-century English religious context.
Her current book project, tentatively titled, The pastor in print: Religious goals, audience, and new media in early modern England, examines the intersection of pastoral ministry and print authorship in early seventeenth century England. Her broader interests include the history of early modern Europe and the Atlantic world, and she has a longstanding interest in digital humanities for both teaching and research.
