Curriculum Vitae

Amy Gant Tan

Research Assistant Professor of History

Amy Tan is a historian of religion, print, and politics in early modern Britain. Her current book project examines the intersection of pastoral ministry and print authorship in early seventeenth century England. She is also completing two smaller projects—one on English exorcism cases after 1604, and one on "brotherly" trans-Atlantic puritan controversies. 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.
