Trish Thomas Henley's Intro to FSDW

I'm Trish Thomas Henley, an assistant professor of early modern lit. and culture at the University of Cincinnati. I specialize in early modern drama, embodiment, and sexuality studies. My current book project focuses on early 17th-century portrayals of prostitution on the early English stage. I am particularly interested in how the sexual ideology of whoredom was transformed when performed by boy actors. I am also in the beginning stages of a DH project mapping the geospatial data in the Bridewell Court Book records. This project is especially concerned with what geospatial, class, and temporal data we can see once specific crimes, dates, and arrest locations are visually mapped.
