Dr Laura Seymour

  • Overview



    Lecturer in Seventeenth-Century Literature. My research focuses on performance, disability, and cognitive theory. My two current research projects examine refusals to behave according to social norms in early modern English and Spanish literature, and representations of neurodiversity in early modern Scottish and English texts.

    I studied at a state grammar school, Cambridge, and Birkbeck, and have also lectured at Bath Spa and Royal Holloway. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

    I teach on the BA English and MA Renaissance Studies. My monograph, Refusing to Behave in Early Modern Literature is forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press.
