Biography: 

Jillian Snyder is a literary scholar whose work focuses on spiritual and somatic experience in early modern England. Her project, Sincere Performances: The Affective Scripts of the Pulpit and Stage in Post-Reformation England, examines how preachers and players grappled with the lived bodily experience of Protestant reform. The project explores the homiletic and theatrical performance of five bodily reactions—weeping, blushing, sighing, trembling, and laughing.

Professor Snyder's other research interests include Shakespearean adaptation and reception, particularly in twenty and twenty-first century American religious culture. She received her Ph.D. (2019) from the University of Notre Dame. Her research has been funded by Notre Dame’s Presidential Fellowship, the Mellon Foundation, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC).
