Writers of Mason: Professor Tamara Harvey


“My new book looks at how women in the 17th century thought about the globe. Part of my argument is that scholars tend to not think about how women would be theorizing the world because women were seen as outside those kinds of discourses. My first book was about how modesty suggested that they shouldn’t have these big visions, but now I’m really thinking about ambition.”

Tamara Harvey is an Associate Professor of English.
