Biography

Research Interests and Selected Publications

Retha M. Warnicke has published numerous books and articles on Tudor women, especially queenship, including both monarchs' consorts and hereditary queens regnant. Three of her books featured Anne Boleyn, Anne of Cleves, and Mary, Queen of Scots. She has presented her findings at several conferences, most recently delivering a keynote address on Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth at the annual meeting of the Queen Elizabeth I Society. She has collaborated with Bettie Anne Doebler, emeritus professor of English, in publishing facsimile copies of women's funeral sermons first printed in the seventeenth-century. In their introductions, Doebler and Warnicke relate the gender differences they discovered in male and female eulogies. Warnicke's most recent project is "Re-Inventing the Wicked Women of Tudor England," which reveals how historians have validated negative gossip about Alice More, Anne Boleyn, Katherine Howard, the Duchess of Somerset and the Countess of Leicester. This gossip, mostly mined from diplomatic dispatches or Catholic polemical literature, was spread by individuals who had little or no personal contact with the women they slandered. The context for her research is the gender and cultural hierarchy that privileged men.

Courses

Warnicke's undergraduate lecture courses cover early English history: the Survey to 1688-89 and Tudor and Stuart England. While they contain social, cultural, economic and gender analyses, political history provides their framework. She also offers one of the department's required senior seminars. The students write research papers based on the travel descriptions or logs and letters of English travelers. The students' assignments provide them with the opportunity to read travel literature, mostly published in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, to research the places the travelers visited, and to assess English attitudes toward other cultures. Warnicke has also advised a number of Ph.D. and M.A. students in early modern English history.
