Clodagh Murphy is a PhD candidate on the ERC consolidator project FEATHERS at the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society.
As part of the FEATHERS project, my research investigates the secretaries of Queen Elizabeth I. By analysing their influence on the queen's English language scribal correspondence, my research explores the professional relationship between secretary and patroness, analyses the queen’s authorship, and works to create a working definition of the early modern secretary.
