Anne Coldiron, Professor (Ph.D., University of Virginia), specializes in late-medieval and Renaissance literature, with publications on such authors as Chaucer, Spenser, Sidney, Shakespeare, Donne, and Milton. Because of her research focus on French-English literary relations, translation, and early printing, she joined FSU's interdisciplinary program in the History of Text Technologies in Spring 2007.

Her first book issues a strong challenge to traditional literary periodization and canons by examining the large, tri-lingual oeuvre of a 15th-century French poet, Charles of Orleans. Her second book, English Printing, Verse Translation, and the Battle of the Sexes, 1476-1557 (2009), treats popular verse translations of French gender discourses that appeared in the formative early decades of printing in England. Her new book project, Printers Without Borders (Cambridge UP, forthcoming), studies the early English printers' and translators' complex, resistant appropriations of foreign texts.

Coldiron has held two NEH research fellowships, in 1998-1999 and in 2010. She held a Folger Shakespeare Library long-term fellowship in 2011. She has won Folger short-term fellowships and an ATLAS grant, and in 2002-3 she was a Kluge fellow in the Library of Congress.

Coldiron's invited lectures include the Library of Congress (DC); Oxford University (UK), the NIDA Institute's Translation Studies Research Symposium (New York), the Folger Shakespeare Library (DC), the University of Connecticut, the Université de Paris, the CNRS (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique) of France; University of Pennsylvania (Fall 2014). In 2014-15 she will serve as Director of the Year-Long Colloquium in Renaissance/Early Modern Translation at the Folger Institute, Washington DC.
