About the speaker:
Timothy Raylor
is Professor of English at Carleton College, Minnesota. His research explores the intellectual and social contexts of early modern literature and thought, embracing the visual arts, philosophy, and science. Before moving to Carleton he was British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Research Associate on the Hartlib Papers Project at the University of Sheffield. Since then Raylor’s publications have included the monographs Cavaliers, Clubs, and Literary Culture: Sir John Mennes, James Smith and the Order of the Fancy and The Essex House Masque of 1621: Viscount Doncaster and the Jacobean Masque; edited collections on Hartlib and on the Cavendish circle; and essays on Jonson, Marvell, Hobbes, Denham, Waller, and more.

His current projects include a monograph on Hobbes and rhetoric, an edition of Milton’s tract Of Education, and (with Stephen Clucas) an edition of Hobbes’s De corpore.
