Elise Robbins is a doctoral candidate studying early modern English literature, with particular interests in religious literature and the Bible, women's writing, devotional poetry, and translation studies. Her most recent research in her masters thesis looked at 3 different examples of Bible translation in early modern England to understand how a translation gains "authority" and how a translation's engagement with a popular audience can help us understand biblical authority in a different way. Her dissertation research examines maternity as an interpretive lens in women's exegetical writings.
