Rachel Adcock is a Lecturer in English at Keele University and her research specialises in women’s textual participation in seventeenth-century dissenting communities. Her first book, Baptist Women’s Writings in Revolutionary Culture, 1640-80 (Ashgate, 2015), was nominated for the Richard L. Greaves Prize for ‘outstanding book-length studies of Anglophone Protestantism to 1700’, awarded by the International John Bunyan Society. She is now embarking on a project concerning dissent and ritual/action. After developing an interest in the theatre of the Exclusion Crisis, she published an article on Behn’s The Roundheads in Women’s Writing (2015) and is in the process of editing two plays for the forthcoming Cambridge Works of Aphra Behn: The Roundheads and The City Heiress. https://www.keele.ac.uk/english/people/racheladcock/
