Dr Jane Pettegree

Education and Experience

Jane graduated MA (Hons) first class from the University of St Andrews in 1988, and PhD from the same university in 2009.  Between 1988 and returning to doctoral study, she worked as a business analyst and sang professionally, specializing in renaissance and baroque music. Alongside her doctoral research, she ran the education outreach programme for the StAnza poetry festival from 2005-2009, arranging over 100 poetry workshops in local schools. She was one of the co-founders of REMNet, the University of St Andrews’s internal network of researchers with Renaissance and Early Modern interests.

Research Interests

Jane’s doctoral thesis was titled “Foreign” and “Native” on the English Stage 1588-1613: Metaphor and National Identity. She continues to be interested in geography, travel, orientalism and other aspects of displacement in early modern cultural studies, and is in the early stages of a new project investigating the uses of Carolingian romance figures in early modern literature.  More generally, she is interested in the relationship between political history and drama, and has written on topical links between law and literature.  She is also interested in applied aspects of performance and in how these might illuminate our understanding of Early Modern texts, and has been involved in several recent opera projects with the University of St Andrews Music Centre.
