Dale Shuger received her Ph.D. from New York University in 2008. She works on early modern Spanish history and literature, with particular interest in Inquisition studies and the interaction of popular and institutional discourse and culture. Her forthcoming book Don Quixote in the Archives: Madness in Cervantes' Spain (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press) is a study of madness in early modern Spain in archival accounts and in Don Quijote. Her current project looks at the development of the Spanish Inquisition's approach to various forms of "unreason" from the 15th to the 19th centuries.
