Sarah Werner is the author of Studying Early Printed Books 1450‑1800: A Practical Guide (Wiley 2019) and the companion site EarlyPrintedBooks.com. She has written numerous articles on book history, digital tools, and library outreach, including “Book History and Digital Scholarship” (with Matthew Kirschenbaum) in Book History and “Toward a Feminist Practice of Bibliography” (forthcoming from Print History). Werner’s earlier scholarship focused on Shakespeare and modern performance, and her book Shakespeare and Feminist Performance: Ideology on Stage (Routledge 2001) is still taught and cited by scholars. She worked at the Folger Shakespeare Library for nearly a decade as the undergraduate program director and digital media strategist, and is now a consultant working with special collections libraries to encourage teaching and collaboration with students and faculty using rare materials.
