Jacqueline Watson


Jackie Watson completed her PhD at Birkbeck College, London, in 2015, with a thesis looking at the life of the Jacobean courtier, Sir Thomas Overbury, and examining the representations of courtiership on stage between 1599 and 1613. She is co-editor of The Senses in Early Modern England, 1558–1660 (Manchester UP, 2015), to which she contributed a chapter on the deceptive nature of sight. Recent published articles have looked at the early modern Inns of Court and at Innsmen as segments of playhouse audiences. She is currently working on a monograph with a focus on Overbury’s letters, courtiership and the Jacobean playhouse.
