Anne James has taught as a Sessional Instructor at Luther College at the University of Regina since 2011. Her research interests include John Donne, John Milton, the early modern sermon, particularly its role in memorializing historical events, and, most recently, digital humanities. With co-investigator Dr. Jeanne Shami, she is engaged in a four-year SSHRC-funded project to increase access to early modern English sermon manuscripts by creating a group-sourced bibliographic database (GEMMS: Gateway to Early Modern Manuscript Sermons). In 2016 she published Poets, Players, and Preachers: Remembering the Gunpowder Plot in Seventeenth-Century England. She currently participates in a collaborative project editing John Donne’s letters and contributes the annual review of publications in Donne studies for the Year’s Work in English Studies.
