Megan Hickerson is an early modernist who specializes in the history of religion and religious persecution during the period of the Protestant Reformation, especially in England. She is the author of Making Women Martyrs in Tudor England (Palgrave Macmillan, 2005), as well as of a number of journal articles and chapters on sixteenth-century religion and gender. She is currently researching representations of Henry VIII and their interactions with both religious controversy and changing ideas about manliness, masculinity and power.
