"A Biographical Encyclopedia of Early Modern Englishwomen," published in December, is organized by categories, instead of the conventional alphabetical format. There are over 800 entries for criminals, ladies at court, entrepreneurs and builders, pirates, immigrants, expatriates, exiles, and world travelers, litigants, philanthropists, witches, writers, and many more. The volume includes famous and unknown women.

Carole Levin, professor of history and director of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program, co-edited the encyclopedia.

“What I find most exciting about it are the number of current and many already graduated UNL students who wrote entries,” she said. “I worked diligently with exceptionally talented undergraduates, as well as many graduate students.”

Graduate students who contributed: Alyson Alvarez, Cassandra Auble, Megan Benson, Anastasia Bierman, Timothy Elston, Neelee Glasco, Courtney Herber, Eder Jaramillo, Amy Keller, Holly Kizewski, Nathan Martin, Catherine Medici, David Moberly, Andrea Nichols, Nathan Probasco, Paul Strauss, and Amy Gant.

Undergraduate students who contributed: Elizabeth Askren, Alaina Bupp, Adam Lambert, Alicia Meyer, Brittny Ofstedal, Kristie Taylor, and Sarah Whitt.
