Katherine Larson (Minnesota & Lincoln 2000) has been named to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.

“To be recognized among an elite group of scholars and artists who are pursuing cutting-edge work is truly exciting,” says Larson, who is an expert in 16th- and 17th- century English literature with interests in early modern women’s writing, gender and language, and music, especially song.  

Larson says it’s exciting to be part of a vibrant field of study, one that began to emerge about 30 years ago or so and continues to discover new materials. She traces her interest in the field back to her honours undergraduate project, which was a feminist reading of Paradise Lost.
