Samantha Rogers

Postdoctoral Fellow

Samantha Rogers is a historian of late medieval and early modern Britain. Her research interests center on debates of political legitimacy and religious authority that lay at the heart of the English Reformation.

Dr. Rogers received her PhD from Vanderbilt University in 2023. Her dissertation, “Public Politics and the Crisis of the Henrician Reformation, 1537-1540,” drew together various modes of political communication, from printed propaganda to public executions, to explore the ways in which power was asserted, performed, and contested during a period of political and religious transition.
