Research Summary and Profile

Research interests:
Early Modern, Language and Literature (German)
Summary of research interests and expertise:

Dr Anne Simon’s main research interests lie in the literature, art and culture of the Middle Ages and Early Modern period; and the impact of these periods on subsequent eras, up to and including the present. Her particular research expertise covers: the History of the Book; Travel Literature; the Reformation; the Relationship between Text and Image; Early Modern Women’s Letters; Saints’ Cults; and the city of Nuremberg, in particular the politics of trade, cultural patronage and urban branding. Currently she is working on two projects: an edition of the letters of the sixteenth-century nun Katerina Lemmel; and a study of Nuremberg’s construction of a “brand image” in the Middle Ages and its subsequent exploitation by the city itself and by others, including the National Socialists.
