Elaine Treharne is the Roberta Bowman Denning Professor of Humanities at Stanford University. She is the author, most recently, of Living Through Conquest: The Politics of Early English, 1020-1220 (Oxford, 2012), and her research has helped reveal the scale and significance of vernacular book production in the post-Conquest period. Her current research is focused on the hapticity and phenomenology of the medieval book, from the earliest medieval period into the modern world.
